Siena's number is 9

ronald moore

Ronald Moore and the Saints are headed to Ohio.

Siena's men's basketball team got a #9 seed in the NCAA tournament. The Saints will play #8 seed Ohio State in Dayton, Ohio on Friday.

That #9 seed is a remarkably high seeding for a team from Siena's conference -- and it's the highest seed the team has gotten in its five trips to the tournament. But in a weird way, it's a tough draw for the Saints. If they're able to beat OSU (which is very possible), they'll almost certainly face #1 seed Louisville in the second round. Not only is Louiville a one seed, it's also the highest seeded team in the whole tournament.

The Saints are scheduled to tip off their first round game around 9:40 Friday night.
