Central coach Dickenman high on Danes

ALBANY - UAlbany coach Will Brown said this was a game that his team wouldn't have won last year.

This year's Great Danes gutted out a 64-63 victory on Saturday night and now have won four of their last five games.

Central Connecticut coach Howie Dickenman said he likes UAlbany's team.

"Albany's a good team," he said. "Albany's going to be, I believe, once of the most improved teams in the country, when it's all said and done. They won seven games last year and they're going to go well over doubles this year."

Dickenman thinks the future is bright for the Great Danes.

"They have a good future too," he said. "You have a hell of a player in (Mike) Black and a hell of a player in (Logan) Aronhalt, although we put the clamps on him tonight."

Dickenman gave high praise to his player, Devan Bailey, in limiting Aronhalt to just eight points (Bailey did get hit with the technical foul late in the game for mouthing off to the refs).

"He should be the defensive player of the week nationally because he worked on Aronhalt and did a good job," Dickenman said.

Thank you Andrew for the great coverage. This game shouldn't have gotten as close as it did but this team still gutted the W out. Gotta give a ton of credit to CCSU, they never quit. A win is a win!
