UAlbany gets Rider in BracketBusters

J.S. Carras/The Record
The University at Albany learned of its ESPN BracketBusters opponent on Monday evening.

The Great Danes will get MAAC foe Rider, which just beat Siena on Sunday, 83-72. The Saints beat the Broncs earlier in the season.

The game is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m., at SEFCU Arena.

“Facing Albany will be a real test for us,” Rider coach Tommy Dempsey told The Trentonian's Kyle Franko. “We look forward to the challenge.”

The Broncs are 6-5 at in fifth place in the MAAC, with a 9-14 record overall. They have played much better recently, as they started the season 1-11. Rider was picked fourth in the MAAC preseason poll.

It should be a good, exciting matchup as both teams can score and are pretty talented.
