UAlbany Women Await NCAA Opponent
After winning a fifth straight America East championship on Friday afternoon, the UAlbany women's basketball team will find out its NCAA Tournament opponent tonight.
The Danes went 27-4 this year, earning a share of the America East championship with Maine, who they defeated in the final.
The Danes are getting closer and closer to breaking down the NCAA Tournament wall.
2015: UAlbany loses to Duke, 54-52 at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
2014: UAlbany loses to West Virginia, 76-61
2013: UAlbany loses to UNC, 59-54
2012: UAlbany loses to Texas A&M, 69-47
If the Danes are going to pull an upset this year, they are going to have to continue to rebound well, where they hold a +7 advantage on the season. They also will need to shoot free throws well, and they are a team that shoots at just a 70 percent clip from the line.
Furthermore, the Danes will have to hit some outside jumpshots. UAlbany is just 29 percent from three-point range on the season.
