Wow..... Albany gets 2014 tourney

The AD's voted to give Albany the next two years of tourney today. Maybe a good way to keep Albany in the AE for a while.

I think you need to play a season in the new arena first.

Wow! Well Albany is a beautiful arena but I was hoping for a trip back to Hartford.

Re: Wow..... Albany gets 2014 tourney

I too was hoping for a different venue in 2014. Albany is close, but that's about the only thing which I enjoyed about it. I much prefer Hartford's arena to SEFCU. Hopefully Albany does as good a job as Hartford did in regards to the fanfest.

Re: Wow..... Albany gets 2014 tourney

Albany really ****ed up ticket sales their first year hosting. They were handing away tickets without checking ID's. It was rediculous. Let's hope they can get there act together. It's a little early to reward them with a second year. So far they are 0-1.

Nevemind. I miscalculated. Stony Brook's arena will be ready for fall 2014 just in time for the 2014-15 season so we can't host the spring 2014 championship so its fine if it goes to Albany. I'm sure Jim Fiore will get the 2015 championship, no way he will miss out on such opportunity.

Re: Wow..... Albany gets 2014 tourney

Fine.

It's drivable and since BU is moving to Patriot can give up hope that the tourney would come back to Boston. Hartford has been great last few seasons though.

That said, AE could always rent out Agganis for a true neutral site. That way at least some basketball could be played there.

Re: Wow..... Albany gets 2014 tourney

I think it would be kind of cool if the team that won the championship the year before got to host the tourney the following year. For the teams that can't host the tourney based on there facilities they get to pick what other host school they wanted it at.

It will be interesting to see if the league is willing to host it in Bangor, or if they will wait for the new Red Claws arena to open in Portland (if it ever does) for Maine to have their shot. The Cross Center is going to be really, really nice.

If UM and the City of Bangor can find some big sponsors........it could happen eventually! I can definitely see the women's tourney there.
