It's hard to believe that another month has nearly come and gone. Fall championships are over and winter sports are nearly in full swing, with indoor track and field getting started this weekend. Even harder to believe, we're just over a month away from basketball conference play. Wednesday, January 2nd is the date to circle on your calendars, as teams begin the drive for this year's America East title.
Before all of that gets underway, however, we've got some great non-conference action over the weekend, including the Albany Cup, the Binghamton women taking a trip to Arizona and a third America East men's team trying its hand at Connecticut. Get ready for all of that and more with today's weekend preview.
