The AHL suspended Albany defenseman Tim Conboy yesterday for eight games, starting with tonight's second game of the River Rats' East Division semifinal series against the Phantoms at the Wachovia Center. Conboy violated a league rule when he came off the bench Wednesday night in Albany during a melee that broke out with 28 seconds remaining in the River Rats' 4-0 win. Conboy and Albany winger Trevor Gillies were assessed game-misconduct penalties. "I've been in the league four years now, and it's not something I've done before," Conboy told the Daily Gazette of Schenectady, N.Y. "It was a heat-of-the-moment-type thing.

Episcopal Academy senior Mike Yocum could have waited, but the way he looked at it, if there were college basketball recruiters still waiting to give him an offer but had yet to act, it wasn't worth talking to them. "I thought that if anyone was really that interested in me, they could have been interested enough to talk to me during the summer or the fall," Yocum said last night. "I didn't want to wait until next spring. " So Yocum, the 6-foot-9, 235-pound center on one of the best prep teams in Southeastern Pennsylvania, has issued an oral commitment to what he considers his best scholarship option - the University of Albany.

If Philadelphia was the cradle of liberty, you could say that Albany was where the infant United States first showed it could stand on its own. In the fall of 1777, British Gen. John "Gentleman Johnny" Burgoyne had a date for Christmas dinner in Albany. But coming down from the north with an army whose mission was to seize control of the vital Hudson River and thus split the colonies in half, Burgoyne ran into a patriot roadblock at Saratoga, just north of here. The American victory at Saratoga, which forced Burgoyne and his army to surrender, convinced the French to throw in with the colonists.

Mason Plumlee was heading toward the basket and an Albany fan behind press row said: "How big is that guy?" A few minutes later, Seth Curry made a smooth baseline drive for a basket and another fan said: "That's the NBA right there. He'd look good on the Sixers. " A second fan said: "Sixers?" Thankfully, it was not about the Sixers on Friday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center. It was about No. 2 NCAA seed Duke against No. 15 Albany, surprise champions of the America East. The Great Danes were game for the entire 40 minutes, playing with great heart.

When Villanova faces Albany on Saturday, more than a month will have passed since the Wildcats have played a game outside the Philadelphia area. And that, according to coach Andy Talley, is a good thing. "I like the fact that we'll get out of Villanova, get on the road and change the scenery to see if we can get this team over the hump," Talley said of the No. 25 Wildcats (2-3, 1-1 Colonial Athletic Association). Losers of two in a row at home for the first time since 2012, they have disappointed Talley in a number of ways.

As a general rule, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski doesn't look to the past when preparing for the NCAA Tournament. The fact that the Blue Devils won national titles in 1991, 1992, 2001 and 2010 has no bearing on what the 2013 team might do. "Well, you know, if we keep looking back at our experiences, then we would really get overconfident, because we've won four national championships and been to 11 Final Fours," said the coach who has won more Division...

It was all so foreign for 15th-seeded Albany: Duke. Philadelphia. The NCAA tournament's bright glare. And, like so many who find themselves in exotic locales, the Great Danes succumbed to a familiar pitfall on Friday - too much hot Curry. Seth Curry, as cool as he was hot, scored 26 points on 10-for-14 shooting, sky-hooking Mason Plumlee added 23 points, and Duke used its typically relentless man-to-man defense to push past gritty but outclassed Albany, 73-61, in its entertaining 2013 NCAA tournament debut at the Wells Fargo Center.
