UAlbany Releases Non-Conference Schedule
After winning the America East Conference for the third straight year, the UAlbany men's basketball team is looking to head to the NCAA tournament for a fourth time in 2015-16.
The first step? Recruit. The second? Release the schedule. UAlbany did some of that on Monday, announcing its non-conference opponents:
|16||at Boston University|
|5||at Holy Cross|
|19||SAINT FRANCIS (PA.)|
|29||at St. Francis Brooklyn|
Obviously the thing that sticks out is the Danes traveling to Kentucky. UAlbany certainly won't be expected to even compete against the Wildcats, but it's a great honor for Will Brown's program to play at historic Rupp Arena.
The other thing that jumps out for the Danes? The Nov. 21 against D-III Oneonta. The Red Dragons will come into SEFCU Arena, and it strikes me as an odd game for UAlbany. We'll talk to to Oneonta coach Vince Medici this morning.
I also like the game against South Florida as UAlbany continues to try to play up in its non-conference schedule.
