UAlbany Beats Mount St. Mary’s in First Four

UAlbany is on its way to play a high seed in the NCAA tournament for the second year in a row after a 71-64 win over Mount St. Mary’s in Dayton, Ohio on Tuesday night.

The Danes lost to second-seeded Duke in the tournament a season ago and had a more difficult route to a high seed this year.

Point guard DJ Evans led the way by tying a career-high with 22 points, Albany shot well at the free throw line (15 of 19) and punched its ticket to the next round.

“He’s fearless,” said UAlbany head coach Will Brown. “He’s won a championship at every level. He plays with a chip on his shoulder because of his size.”

Albany was ahead by 19 points at one time in the first half and lost the lead in the second half but came back to win their first NCAA tournament game in the program’s history.

Brown and his team will board a plane on Tuesday night at midnight and head straight to Orlando for a difficult game against the No.1 Florida Gators on Thursday afternoon at 4 p.m.
