UAlbany Sports Information   12-05-2017

ALBANY, N.Y. – The University at Albany women’s basketball team will play its second of three consecutive games on the road Wednesday when they head south to face Manhattan.

UAlbany (5-2) last played at Holy Cross to kick off the three-game road trip, its first of three games in seven days. After a tight first quarter, UAlbany started to pull away, leading by as many as 16 before ultimately defeating the Crusaders by nine, 65-56. Though UAlbany struggled from the floor Sunday, particularly from behind the arc, the team grabbed 45 rebounds and forced 25 Holy Cross turnovers.

Senior Tiana-Jo Carter played in her 100th game for UAlbany against Holy Cross. Carter has been a member of three conference championship teams, ranks as one of the best shot-blockers in program history, and was named 2014-15 America East Sixth Player of the Year.

Manhattan has played only two games at home this season. They most recently visited Penn State falling 78-46. UAlbany is the second America East team the Jaspers will play this season, and the first of two consecutive America East squads on their schedule.
