UAlbany's season ends after strong effort against Florida

UAlbany's season ends after strong effort against Florida

UAlbany's season is over after falling to Florida 67-55 Thursday night.

After rolling through the America East Tournament last week and notching the program's first NCAA Tournament win Tuesday against Mount St. Mary's, the top seeded Gators proved to be too tough to match.

The Great Danes lead at points in the first half and even tied Florida at 39 with 14:08 to go in the second half.  The Gators then pulled away.

Senior DJ Evans lead UAlbany with 21 points.  Florida's Patric Young racked up a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Postseason basketball is not over for the school.  UAlbany women's basketball faces West Virginia Sunday at 3 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  Coverage begins at 2:45 on Fox Sports 980.
