America East Conference champ Albany is a first time winner in the NCAA tournament. A 71-64 win over Mount St. Mary's in Dayton, Ohio. It gets a whole lot harder for the Great Danes when they play the #1 seed Florida Gators Thursday at 4:10pm in Orlando.

Senior DJ Evans led Albany with 22 points, sophomore Peter Hooley had 20. The Great Danes now have a 19-14 record.
