UAlbany men ready for CIT showdown with St. Peter's

ALBANY, NY (WRGB)--The UAlbany men's basketball team was less than five minutes away from upsetting Vermont in the America East Championship.

The Great Danes led the Catamounts, who were unbeaten in conference play, with 4:39 on the clock on Saturday.

Instead, the top-seeded team in the league mounted a comeback, and boxed UAlbany out of the NCAA Tournament.

Then, the very next day, word came out that the season was not over for the Great Danes.

UAlbany will be hosting St. Peter's in the first round of the COLLEGEINSIDER.COM tournament at SEFCU Arena on Thursday night.

This marks the sixth straight year that UAlbany takes part in the postseason.
