Both UAlbany Basketball Teams Seeded In NCAA Tournament

Congratulations UAlbany mens and womens basketball teams!

One of SUNY’s four university centers, The University at Albany, is shining its shoes and practicing its pointe (guards) for a historical weekend: Both UAlbany mens and womens basketball teams became champions of the America East conference and are headed to the NCAA Tournament.

The Mens Basketball Team punched their ticket with a 53-49 victory at The University of Vermont in the America East championship game on Saturday, March 16.  Later that day, the Womens Team made it a pair of championships when they defeated The University at Hartford, 61-52 at home.

The Mens Team will head to Philadelphia on Friday, March 22, where they will face legendary Coach Mike Krzyzewski’s four-time NCAA champion Duke Blue Devils at 12:15 p.m. The game will be televised on CBS.

The women’s team will face North Carolina on Sunday, March 24 in Newark, Delaware. Tip-off is set for 2:30 p.m., and the game will be televised on ESPN2.
