Danes come up just short in 2OT

UAlbany did a lot of good things on Friday night.

Like coach Will Brown, I'll be interested to see how they bounce back Saturday, after falling 84-82 in double overtime to Detroit in the Legends Classic subregional at Calihan Hall.

"We did some good things," Brown told the WOFX radio crew following the game. "Now, I'm concerned with how do we regroup."

The Great Danes (1-4) got huge 3-pointers at the buzzer from Mike Black, who returned from injury, and Billy Allen to send the game into overtime and then double overtime.

Black returned from an ankle sprain and scored 11, while Allen chipped in 12 in just 15 minutes.

Brown said he thought Black might not be able to turnaround and play against on Saturday and he wasn't sure about Puk.

If I had to be, I'd say Puk played and Black didn't (that's just a guess).

Brown said he was also happy with just 15 turnover.

"We've done a real good job taking care of the ball, besides the Georgia Tech game," he said.

It's hard to feel good about a loss, but remember the Titans were picked second in the very good Horizon League, behind national runner-up Butler.

"We played as talented a team as there is on our schedule and we showed a lot of character," Brown said. "We got better today. We got a lot of contributions."
