Men's Basketball Announces Non-Conference Schedule
ALBANY, N.Y. – The University at Albany men’s basketball team has announced its non-conference schedule for the upcoming 2019-20 season.
The non-conference schedule features six games at SEFCU Arena as well as a three-day multi-team tournament, the Bobcats Invitational, in late November hosted by Quinnipiac University.
“We are looking forward to the challenges of our non-conference schedule,” said head coach Will Brown. “The games will prepare us for the rigors of conference play. I am excited about the opportunity to play three games in New York City, where we have a strong alumni presence. Playing at Boston College is another tremendous opportunity for our alumni base in the Boston area. The 2019-20 team will be an exciting group, and we are confident that our fans will enjoy watching this team play. The SEFCU Arena will be the place to be this winter.”

The Great Danes kick off the season with two straight games at home, beginning with Lehigh on November 9 followed by Canisius on November 13. The road opener, scheduled for November 16, will be played at Manhattan — the team’s first of four games in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area.
A quick return home to play Potsdam leads into the Bobcats Invitational starting on November 22. The Danes will face off against host Quinnipiac as well as Sacred Heart and Presbyterian in three consecutive days.
The Great Danes will welcome American University and Yale in consecutive home games before a two-game road swing at Bucknell on December 7 and at ACC opponent Boston College on December 10.
The final home game of the non-conference schedule will see UAlbany face Niagara on December 14 before closing out 2019 with three straight on the road. Trips to St. John’s and Monmouth precede the holiday break, and the Danes finish 2019 with a trip to Columbia on December 30 following a nine-day holiday layoff.
Last season, UAlbany went 12-20, breaking in a young squad that featured freshmen at all five starting positions for the final five games of the year. The team fell in the America East quarterfinal round to tournament runner-up UMBC.
