The Albright men's basketball team is excited to get a rematch with rival Alvernia after falling by 22 in the first meeting.


The Albright men's basketball team gets another shot at cross-town rival Alvernia on Wednesday night at the Bollman Center. The Crusaders handled the Lions by 22 in the first meeting on Jack McCloskey Court.

This is a rivalry that has developed over the last few years. Many of the Albright seniors have talked about how they never expected it to be something this big.

Now it's something they're going to miss after this year.


Alvernia has played well entering the showdown, winning six straight and in place to compete for the top seed in the Commonwealth tournament. Albright needs a big win, having lost four of five and in danger of missing the postseason.
