Duke came into Sunday's game against Vermont, a rival of UAlbany in the America East Conference, a 26.5 point favorite. They nearly lost outright to the Catamounts, in what will be remembered as one of the games of the year in college basketball.
By now you know that the UAlbany Great Danes are going dancing. You also know that they had to beat Vermont to get there. And from those two things, you can probably infer that Great Danes fans went nuts once they got the job done, as evidenced by this fan shot video of the celebration.
If you had sat down with me before the America East Basketball Tournament kicked off last weekend and told me that UAlbany would have to go through Stony Brook and Vermont to get to the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, I would have said their chances were slim. The odds were stacked against them and history not on their side, but the Great Danes have closed the final chapter of their 2012-13 Amer
After a thrilling run through the first two rounds of the America East basketball championships, UAlbany is faced with the daunting task of heading north to Patrick Gym in Burlington to take on the second seeded Vermont Catamounts on Saturday.

On the Sunday calendar was all four Semifinal matchups on both the Men’s and Women’s sides, with only two schools being represented in both sessions – tournament host UAlbany and Vermont.
March Madness has officially arrived for mid-major conferences throughout the week, and that includes our very own UAlbany Great Danes, who are hosting the America East Tournament throughout the weekend at SEFCU Arena. The ladies opened action on Friday with a triple-header of Quarterfinal match-ups (Maine forfeited against UAlbany due to travel concerns, hence only a triple-header), and the actio
The University at Albany men's basketball team is 16-4 and tied atop the America East conference standings with a 5-1 mark in league play. However, that could all be rendered meaningless if they fail to deliver with wins over the next week, with games against conference nemeses Boston University, Vermont, and Stony Brook all at home and all within the next seven days.
Burn the tape. Don't even show it to the players. That would be my recommendation to UAlbany head coach Will Brown if he asked. No reason to review the video after Vermont hit the Great Danes with a 70-45 destruction of the Great Danes in Burlington, Vermont on Saturday...
