Tall order for Great Danes

By Bob Weiner

University at Albany will face a tall order when the Great Danes visit the Washington Huskies Tuesday night in Seattle's Alaska Airlines Arena.

The 1-0 Huskies, who thumped Loyola in their opener, will start a 7-foot-1 center and a 6-10 power forward against the 1-1 Great Danes, who are coming off an 86-60 loss at fourth-ranked Ohio State Sunday afternoon.

The Great Danes will be led by senior point guard Mike Black, who is averaging 17.5 ppg over his first two games.

Washington is led by NBA prospect C.J. Wilcox, and the Huskies' big man is Aziz N'Diaye, who scored 10 points and grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds against Loyola.
