UAlbany ready for next test

The University at Albany is riding a 5-game winning streak and they continue to play well to start the 2012-13 season.

The win streak is the longest since Nov. 19-Dec. 1, 2008.

If they can beat South Carolina State, they will extend past five games for the first time since Jan. 15-Feb. 7, 2007, which was an 8-game winning streak during a 23-10 season that saw them punch a trip to the NCAA tournament for the second consecutive season.

UAlbany has already defeated South Carolina State, 83-55, earlier in the year.

Since the Great Danes won at Colgate, on Saturday, a lot has happened.

Mike Black, who turned 22 on Sunday, was named America East Player of the Week. I also wrote a feature story about him that appeared in Sunday's paper.

Also, UAlbany jumped to No. 22 in the College Insider Mid-Major Top 25 poll, the highest the program has ever been ranked.

Below, coach Will Brown talks about the game.
