UNCASVILLE, Conn. – The University at Albany men’s basketball team will play in the 2020 Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament at Mohegan Sun Arena.  The Great Danes are one of eight teams in this year’s tournament field.
“We are looking forward to participating in this Hall of Fame multi team event,” said head coach Will Brown.  “Greg Procino and his staff do an outstanding job and Mohegan Sun is an awesome venue.  Our past experiences participating in the Tip-Off Tournament have been memorable and we expect the same this year as it truly is a first-class event.”
The eight teams are separated into two brackets.  UAlbany will play in the Springfield bracket with Lehigh, LIU, and Quinnipiac.  The Naismith bracket features Marquette, Minnesota, Central Florida, and Rhode Island.
