Road games at Boston College and St. John's in a nine-day span of December highlight the University at Albany men's basketball schedule, released Monday.

The Great Danes, coming off their first losing season (12-20) since 2009-10, return last year's all-freshman starting lineup. They open their season Saturday, Nov. 9, at home against Lehigh.

UAlbany, after playing three of its first four games at home, then heads to the Bobcats Invitational over Thanksgiving weekend in Hamden, Conn., facing host Quinnipiac, Presbyterian and Sacred Heart on consecutive days.

Home games against American and Yale are followed by a stretch of four road contests in five games, including Tuesday, Dec. 10, against Atlantic Coast Conference member Boston College, and Wednesday, Dec. 18, against St. John's of the Big East.

The UAlbany women also released their non-conference schedule, which opens Tuesday, Nov. 5, at home against Columbia.

The Great Danes women will play Dec. 7 against crosstown rival Siena in Loudonville.

Both teams' America East schedules were released last month by the conference.
