It looks as if the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Tournament will be held in Albany in 2009.
Channel 13 in Albany is stating that the tournament, which was supposed to be held in Trenton, New Jersey, will in fact be back in the Capital District next season.
This would be very good for Siena fans and also the conference because Albany seems to be the location that draws the most fans and with a very good Siena team expected for next season, the crowds should be huge.
It also means that the MAAC Tournament would be in direct competition with the America East Tournament, which was awarded to the University at Albany a few weeks ago.
The interesting question is why did the tournament leave Trenton and will this have any effect on the America East's decision to have the tournament here. We will try to find that out tomorrow.
