UAlbany Great Danes (4-2) vs. Wagner Seahawks (1-2)
THE STARTING FIVE
1. Four In Four
UAlbany has opened up the season with four wins in six games. Each of the four wins this season came in a different state. The Great Danes have won in the states of New York, Connecticut, Washington and most recently in South Carolina.
2. When It Rains, It Pours
The Great Danes found their rhythm from behind the arc in their most recent game against South Carolina State. In that game, UAlbany hit 15-of-29 three-pointers, which set a Division I record. Before the 15 team-made threes, UAlbany made 14 three-pointers in a game twice before and most recently against Detroit on Nov. 26, 2010. Seniors Mike Black, Jayson Guerrier, and Jacob Iati went a combined 13-for-23 from behind the arc to pace the squad. Guerrier opened the game with three consecutive threes in a matter of three minutes.
3. There Is A First For Everything
This will be the sixth time that UAlbany meets up with Wagner. In the previous five meetings, the Seahawks have taken each meeting to hold a 5-0 record over the Great Danes. UAlbany, who won its home-opener against Duquesne, will look to break that 5-0 streak on Monday, Nov. 26 at the SEFCU Arena.
4. Agent 0's Name Begins To Surface
In six games this season, fifth-year senior guard has hit 20-of-39 three-pointers. His 20 three-pointers are currently best in the America East Conference and tied-for eighth in the NCAA. He is currently shooting 51.3 percent from behind the arc. The York, Pa. native has strung together 14 consecutive games with at least one triple in a game.
5. Rising Mid-Major
The Great Danes received 21 votes in the College Insider's Top-25 Mid-Major Poll last week. The 21 votes are the highest in the America East Conference currently, with Stony Brook as the only other team in the conference receiving votes with three. The panel is made up of 30 mid-major coaches and former head coach and current ESPN analyst Seth Greenberg as the chairman of the voting panel.
