UAlbany volleyball releases tough 2013-14 schedule

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. – UAlbany volleyball's 27-game 2013-14 schedule will be highlighted by matches against seven 2012 NCAA tournament teams.

"The first four weeks of our season will be the toughest competition of the year," said head coach MJ Engstrom. "After four weekends, we will have played five NCAA tournament teams in the first month, including two teams who have been in the NCAA semifinals the last two years."

Before hosting league rival Binghamton in their home opener at 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 28, the Great Danes' season debut will be a face-off against UCLA when they head to Los Angeles on August 30. They will continue play in Los Angeles, with match-ups against Loyola Marymount and North Texas on August 31.

UAlbany will then venture back east for three tournaments in September, including the UConn Classic on the 6 and 7, the Carolina Classic on the 13 and 14, and wrapping up the majority of their nonconference schedule at the Penn State Classic on the 20 and 21. While competing on Penn State's University Park campus, the Great Danes will be taking on the 2012 NCAA tournament No. 1 seed Nittany Lions in the first match on September 20.

The Great Danes will then begin the hunt for their sixth straight America East regular season title when they face Binghamton.

The America East Tournament will be hosted by the regular season champion, with competitions between the four teams with the best league records, November 22 and 23.
