What to Know

An America East battle is on tap between the Albany Great Danes and the New Jersey Tech Highlanders at 7 p.m. ET Saturday at McDonough Sports Complex. These two teams are looking to take out their frustrations on one another after having lost close ones recently.

Albany was close but no cigar on Saturday as they fell 74-72 to the Maine Black Bears. The loss was just more heartbreak for the Great Danes, who fell 72-68 when the teams previously met in January.

Speaking of close games: New Jersey Tech was just a bucket short of a win on Wednesday and fell 79-78 to the Bryant Bulldogs.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Albany is expected to win a tight contest. Their home court has been no bettor's paradise, though, as they've failed to beat the spread in six of their ten home games.

The losses put Albany at 7-22 and New Jersey Tech at 7-20. The Great Danes are 7-14 after losses this season, the Highlanders 7-12.
