GAMEDAY: UAlbany vs. Rider

J.S. Carras/The Record
Tonight's regular season home finale for UAlbany will be interesting.

The Great Danes will likely be without three-fifths of their starting lineup because the game doesn't mean as much as the regular season finale or the upcoming conference tournament.

Rider could be without some players as well, as they have had a couple players miss games recently due to sickness.

If both teams were at full strength, this would be a track meet.

As it is, UAlbany will try to slow things down.

Both teams would like finish the regular season strong and the winner will get some momentum, heading into the final week.
