UAlbany and Siena Will Continue Basketball Rivalry
It was announced today that we will see at least four more years of the crosstown rivalry Men’s Basketball game between the UAlbany Great Danes and the Siena Saints. According to the Times Union, the schools have agreed on a contract that will run throught the 2014-2015 season.
As always the games will be played at the Times Union Center. The next game between the two schools is scheduled for December 5th at 7pm. UAlbany won the last meeting in overtime 88-82 this past December.
I have had the opportunity to go to a few of these rivalry games and it is such a great experience. The TU Center is packed full of fans going nuts for the two hometown squads. It’s always great when area teams pack in the fans. The ValleyCats seem to be breaking attendance records as of late but most other sports don’t have many fans showing up. I say kudos to UAlbany and Siena for letting this new tradition and rivalry continue, I will no doubt be at these games!
