Albany's Victory Over Syracuse Named an America East Moment of the Year

New, 1 comment

I'm not really sure what the other nominees are, but they are probably warmed over garbage compared to this.

Albany's victory over Syracuse to open each team's 2013 campaign -- a face-melter that (1) signaled to the nation that the Great Danes planned on carpet bombing the country, and (2) sent Syracuse fans into a sociopathic rage -- was one of the most exciting games played all of last season. The double-overtime boogaloo (a game that saw Syracuse climb back from deficits throughout the evening) recently earned some kind of special award for Achievement in the Field of Notable Achievement (America East Achievement Division):

I'm not exactly sure what that means, so congratulations? Whatever. Here's a truncated advanced box score from the indisputably bonkers experience:
