Men’s Basketball: #AEPlayoffs Quarterfinals: #8 Maine at #1 Albany

This past Wednesday I had the pleasure of tuning into our basketball team’s game against the Maine Black Bears. It was the first time I’d watched an Albany game in its entirety and I must say it was a good one. The Great Danes, a team that isn’t known to have bow out wins, dominated Maine throughout the entire game. Below is a play-by-play of what I observed during the short hour and a half game:

7:16 p.m. – Peter Hooley, good energy! 75 percent free throws this year. Nice!

7:17 p.m. – Commentators- stop just stop. Enough with the Aussie jokes

7:18 p.m. – Player down on Maine!

7:18 p.m. – 1st quarter. Albany ahead; 17-7.

7:20 p.m. – Evan Singletary #0…please don’t miss! *fingers crossed*

7:23 p.m. – Evan already has 11 points in the game. Hopefully he, as well as the rest of the team, keeps it up

7:23 p.m. – Nine minutes left in the game. Score 26-9 Albany

7:25 p.m. – Sanders goes for the 3….miss.
