GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Woodlands High School graduate Reece Williams and the University of Albany men's basketball team were eliminated on Thursday from the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament by No. 1 seed Florida .
Williams, a reserve sophomore guard with the No. 16 seed Great Danes, did get a chance to be on the floor late in the second half of a 67-55 loss in the second round of the tournament.
Albany (19-15) defeated Mount St. Mary in Tuesday's opening round game in Dayton, Ohio, then traveled to Orlando, Fla., to meet the nation's top-ranked and heavily-favored Gators.
The Danes led 19-15 early in the game and trailed by just six points at halftime.
