The Albany Convention Center Authority was created in 2004. Now,  a decade later, the Albany Convention Center plan is headed toward fruition. The idea for building an Albany Convention Center has been floating around for more than a decade, seeded in outgoing Mayor Jerry Jenning's "Capitalize Albany" plan.

The NCAA is taking another look at Albany, and now city and county officials are scrambling to provide necessary amenities and roll out the welcome mat.

After all the upsets in the NCAA men's basketball tournament, the top overall seed has captured the championship. Louisville defeated Michigan 82-76. Teammate Kevin Ware was the last Louisville player to cut down the nets just over a week after he suffered a broken leg in the game against Duke. The Wolverines appeared to have the game in control after Tim Hardaway Jr.'s layup put them ahead 35-23 with about 3 1/2 minutes left in the first half. But the Cardinals led by as many as 10 in the second half en route to their first championship since 1986.
