The UAlbany men's and women's basketball team both won their conference tournament this past weekend -- so they're both headed to the NCAA tournament.
After winning the America East tournament 53-49 over Vermont, UAlbany got a #15 seed in the Midwest bracket -- and is matched up with #2 seed Duke. The Great Danes and Blue Devils will play this Friday at 12:15 in Philadelphia. The game will be on CBS.
This is UAlbany's first trip to the tournament since 2007.
Obviously, a UAlbany win would be a big upset. Duke has been one of the top teams all season. That said Duke lost last year in the first round as a #2 seed to #15 seed Lehigh.
The UAlbany women continued their domination of the America East over the weekend, winning the conference tournament 61-52 over Hartford. The Great Danes were also undefeated through the conference regular season.
The brackets for the women's tournament will be announced tonight (Monday) at 7 pm. This will be the UAlbany women's team second straight trip to to the tournament.
The Syracuse men's basketball team got a #4 seed in the East bracket, and the Orange will face #13 seed Montana in San Jose, California. The game is Thursday at about 10 pm on truTV (TWC channel 71).
