UAlbany Women Earn 14 Seed, Will Play North Carolina In NCAA Tournament

After a 27-3 season that included an 18-0 mark in America East play en route to a conference title, the UAlbany Great Danes women’s basketball team has earned a 14 seed in the NCAA Tournament and will play North Carolina in Newark, Delaware on Sunday at 2:30 p.m..

This is the second straight NCAA Tournament appearance for the Great Danes, after they won the America East tournament last season and claimed a 14 seed. They gave 3 seed and defending national champion Texas A&M a run for their money, keeping the game within single digits deep into the second half before the Aggies buried them with a run. This year the Danes come into the tournament with more wins, another year together under their belts, and NCAA Tournament experience.

North Carolina went 27-5 this year, and 14-4 in the ACC before losing to Duke in their conference championship game. They have outscored their opponents by just over 10 points per game this season and will certainly be a difficult team for the Great Danes to get around in the first round.

However, one thing the Great Danes do have going for them is this: North Carolina doesn’t have a player taller than 6’6″ on its roster. That means Albany’s 6’8″ Megan Craig can be a game changer as the biggest player on the floor.

Whether she can help the Danes achieve a huge upset remains to be seen, but there is certainly hope.
