St. Mary’s. Both go into the tournament as 16 seeds.  The Syracuse Orange face Western Michigan Thursday in Buffalo.  The Orange are a three-seed in the South Regional while the Broncos go in as a 14 seed.

Albany defeated the Stony Brook Seawolves to capture the America East spot in the tournament. The Great Danes carry a record of 18-14 into action after a 9-7 conference slate. The Mountaineers are 16-16 and were 9-7 in the North East Conference.  They defeated Robert Morris to earn their automatic bid. Game-time is 6:40 PM

The Binghamton Bearcats faced both teams.  Albany defeated the Bearcats in both America East games and Binghamton defeated Mount St Mary’s in December 74-70 in Emmitsburg, Md.

Syracuse carries a 27-5 record into Thursday’s contest with Western Michigan.  Western Michigan won the Mid-American Conference title and is 23-9 heading into the tournament.  Tip-off time has not yet been announced.
