Albany Basketball has built its program using talent from overseas. Star guard Cameron Healy may be the best one ever for them.
Recruiting is the lifeblood of every program. The players in the program reflect the coach. If the coach can recruit players to blend with their system and philosophies, they do not always have to have the best players. Albany Basketball and their head coach Will Brown have done a tremendous job of recruiting program guys. Coach Brown has a knack for finding players from overseas, mainly Australia.
The current star for the Great Danes is from Down Under as well. He joins a long list of Albany players to come from the country. Cameron Healy enters his sophomore season ready to help Albany compete near the top of the America East Conference. The Great Danes had a very atypical season last year. A season ago the expectations changed quickly as former stars Joe Cremo and David Nichols decided to transfer. Those two players transferred with the hopes of playing for a championship.
Coach Will Brown had to piece together a young and inexperienced team. That team was looking for anyone to step up and become the star. Healy emerged and provided the Great Danes fans something to look forward to. Coach Brown has a more experienced team this season as well as most of his scoring from a season ago. Healy and the Great Danes are hoping that the twelve-win season from a year ago was just an anomaly. This year the hopes should be to compete with UMBC and Vermont at the top of the conference as always.
