near as close as last season’s first-round contest in the NCAA Tournament. The

1 seed, and led the talented Huskies in the second half before falling down
the stretch in a 72-59 defeat. A.J. Price added 13 points and Hasheem
Thabeet donated 12 points and seven boards for the Huskies (5-0), who have
won each of their games at home this season. Jamar Wilson led Albany (2-2)
with 18 points while Jason Siggers had 16 points and seven rebounds.
