There is an interesting human interest twist to this game involving Mark Lyons, Tu Holloway and Albany University.

Weather-related flight cancellations forced the Great Danes to travel by bus to Cincinnati, Ohio. Showing the holiday spirit, Albany offered Lyons, from nearby Schenectady, New York and Tu Holloway, from Hempstead, New York, a ride on the bus. Lyons was able to ride with the Great Danes but Holloway couldn’t get to Albany to be able to take them up on the offer.

Holloway, did arrive at the Cintas Center, home of the Musketeers, just in time for the 2 p.m.

All five Musketeers starters scored in double figures led by Kenny Frease for 17 points, 9 rebounds, Jamel McLean had a double-double had 15 points and 11 rebounds and Dante Jackson put in 14 points.
