Great Danes win over another coach

ALBANY - It's happened a couple of times this season.

Teams have come into SEFCU Arena (where UAlbany is 3-3 on the season) and the opposing coach has said he really likes the Great Danes' team.

It happened again on Sunday, with New Hampshire coach Bill Herrion.

"I like their team," Herrion said after UAlbany posted a 59-44 victory in both school's America East Conference opener. "They're playing hard. They know who they are."

Herrion said he likes that the Danes have a senior who can score, Tim Ambrose (right) and sophomore Mike Black, who he said he thinks will have a good career.

The Great Danes have one more win than they did all of last year.

"I think Will (Brown) deserves a lot of credit," Herrion said.

Herrion said that UAlbany's trio of Ambrose, Black and Logan Aronhalt are as good as any guards in the league.

Aronhalt finished with just six points and has averaged 10.3 points over the last three games, since he injured his back against Colgate.

"He's thinking too much right now and that's fine," Brown said.

Brown said he just wants Aronhalt to shoot and then concentrate on defense and rebounding.

On the technical foul that Brown received, 1:32 into the game from referee Tim Kelly.

Brown said that Kelly told him he swore.

"He claims I did," Brown said. "I claim I didn't."

Brown couldn't remember the last time he received a technical, neither could media guru Brian DePasquale.

"It happens in this game," Brown said. "I think referees are competitive, coaches are competitive and players are competitive."
