ALBANY, N.Y. – The UAlbany men’s lacrosse team will look to shine in the Lone Star State as it takes on Cornell on February 28th, 2015 in Dallas, Texas.

The teams will meet on the campus of Southern Methodist University for the Saturday game.  The time of the game is to be announced.

This will be the second matchup of the in-state squads and first in the regular season.  UAlbany and Cornell met in the 2007 NCAA Quarterfinal Round, with the Big Red winning 12-11 in overtime in Princeton, New Jersey.

This game will feature a game of 2014 NCAA participants.  UAlbany earned a spot in the NCAA Quarterfinals after winning the America East Tournament and defeating 3-seed Loyola in the first round.  Cornell earned an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament after earning a share of the Ivy League regular season title, falling to Maryland in the NCAA First Round.

It will be the first time UAlbany men’s lacrosse will play in the state of Texas.  Cornell last played in Dallas in 2008 in a game versus Denver.

UAlbany will see a familiar face on the Big Red sideline with assistant coach Chris Kivlen, a UAlbany alum and former assistant coach that had a hand in four America East titles and the program’s first NCAA win in 2007.
