UAlbany picked third or sixth???

When speaking with UAlbany coach Will Brown during media day, a question was asked about Tim Ambrose being picked for the All-America East preseason first team.

Brown responded that he doesn't put much stock in those selections, especially since the last two seasons, the champions hasn't been picked in the top four.

"We did the (America East) poll in April and we were picked sixth," Brown said. "What happened between April and October, besides (the) Binghamton (catastrophe), so if you slide them down to last and everybody moves a slot, so we should be moved to fifth and now we're third. I don't know."

The Great Danes were picked third behind Boston University at Vermont.

With some teams, this may not be difficult and UAlbany only lost two starters, but they still have a number of question marks of who will play where and for how long.

I'll give you my starting five in a second, but first let's look back at last year's starting five for the Nov. 14 game at Villanova.

Here's how I think things will line up on Monday against Syracuse.
