ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — It’s been a seemingly long offseason at UAlbany, but the Great Danes finally get their season started at home on Tuesday against Towson. After putting in the work in practice, Dwayne Killings and the Danes are looking to start this new era of UAlbany basketball off on the right foot.
Leading a basketball program such as UAlbany is a dream come true for Killings, and he wants to make sure he gets things started the right way. So much so that it’s kept him up at night. “I’ll be honest with you man, I woke up this morning at 2:33 and I haven’t been asleep since,” said Killings. “I just wake up with all these thoughts. They’re not nerves. It’s just about making sure we get it right. Like, we get one first impression.”
Killings went on to say, “I want people to come in and feel like it’s a different experience. To feel like they’re already connected to the program. I mean I pushed, and everybody here has worked so hard to put our basketball program in the forefront. Now we have to perform on the court.”
Tip-off Tuesday is set for 7 p.m.
