Albany Great Danes basketball notes:
The preseason favorite in the America East conference held on to earn the regular season and conference tournament titles. Jamar Wilson is a tremendous scorer, but the turnovers will need to be kept under control. The inside game is strong for a small conference team with 7-1 Kirsten Zoellner and 6-8 sophomore Brent Wilson. The depth for the big guys isn’t there, so the Great Danes will have to stay out of foul trouble, which they haven’t done too well all season. The long ball isn’t a huge part of Albany’s offense, but Jon Iati and the Wilsons can knock them down. Albany doesn’t have much of a shot of upsetting anybody, but just getting there is a proud accomplishment for a program that has been in Division I for just six years.
