Can the Great Danes be dolphin-like?

ualbany logo purpleThe UAlbany men's basketball team tips off its regular season tonight against Syracuse at the Carrier Dome. The game will be on ESPNU at 9 pm (that's channel 606 on Time Warner digital).

Obviously, this a is a big game for the Great Danes -- it's not every day they play a high-profile team like the Orange. But it could also be a big game for SU. Coach Jim Boeheim has 799 wins in coaching career. Could UAlbany be #800?

It might seem like a done deal. Syracuse is ranked in/near the Top 25. But the Orange lost a bunch of good players from last year's team -- including point guard Jonny Flynn, who was picked #6 overall in this year's NBA draft. And Syracuse just lost an exhibition game to the mighty Dolphins of Division II LeMoyne. So you never know.

Update: Or sometimes you do. The Orange ran away with it, 75-43.

By the way: The Siena men's hoops team opens its season at Tennessee State Friday night.

No matter how long I live in Albany, I will never root for anyone but Syracuse. There's a real Division 1 Men's Basketball Team :D

I with you aj. I went to Siena and I can't even cheer for them when they play Syracuse, but I grew up out there and my blood runs orange.
