Men's Basketball Signs Amica
ALBANY, N.Y. – The University at Albany men’s basketball team and head coach Will Brown have announced the signing of Will Amica to the team for the upcoming 2020-21 season.
“We are excited to add Will to our program,” said Brown. “He is an outstanding student-athlete who comes from a great family. Will is a dynamic playmaking point guard who is always in attack mode. He is quick, explosive, and difficult to keep out of the lane. He has the unique ability to make his teammates better but also put up big numbers on the offensive end. What I love about Will is that he is a winner. Will was the best player and MVP on a state championship team as a junior in the largest classification that New York State has to offer. West Genesee High School and the Albany City Rocks AAU Program are two highly successful programs that Will has been a part of and I am confident that he will bring that winning mentality to our program and help us win a lot of games during his four year career.”
Amica, a 6-1, 175lb guard from Syracuse, N.Y., is entering his fourth year on the varsity team at West Genesee High School. He was the 2019 New York State Class AA Tournament MVP, leading West Genesee to the state title. A Central New York Player of the Year and First Team selection, Amica plays his AAU ball for City Rocks AAU, which has send hundreds of players to the NCAA Division I level. City Rock currently has dozens of former players in professional leagues around the world.
The Great Danes return to action Saturday, November 16 at Manhattan.
