UAlbany vs Siena Tonight at Times Union Center


Tonight who will host ‘Albany’s Cup’?  Will be the Siena Men’s Basketball team who is coming off a 66-59 loss to Loyola or will it be the University at Albany who beat Siena last year?   One thing for sure, both teams hate each other.  This is a big rivalry game and approximately 10,000 fans are expected to be at the Times Union Center to watch it all go down.

Tonight is the game of the year for many fans here in the Albany area.   These are two teams and fan bases that literally hate each other.

To many Siena fans, UAlbany isn’t even in the same league and doesn’t deserve to play each other.  UAlbany fans argue that the game should be held at the SEFCU Arena once so Albany can have home field advantage and share in the revenue.

UAlbany is 4-3 while Siena is 2-5.  Siena holds a 8-2 advantage in this contest.  UAlbany appears to have the slight edge and is probably the favorite  but in this rivalry records dont matter.. just trash talk and pride.

The game which is usually held on the first Saturday in December has been moved to Monday night for the first time 2004, tip off is at 7pm.   It’s also the last time that Siena has lost five in a row.

Last year 10,782 fans watched UAlbany win the cup.  So who do you think will win tonight?
