Siena tips off tonight

siena_sports_logo.jpgThe Siena men's basketball team opens its regular season tonight on the road at Tennessee State (in Nashville).

This could be a big year for the Saints. They return four starters from last year's team, which reached the second round of the NCAA tournament (for the second straight year). They were the #1 team in the MAAC pre-season poll, with two players on the conference first team. And the Saints have been so good over the last few years that "major" schools are now reluctant to play them.

You can catch the play-by-play of tonight's game on Talk 1300 at 7 pm, pre-game at 6 pm. (The TU had a Q&A today with Robert Lee, the Saints play-by-play announcer.) And the Recovery Room in Troy will be showing a live video feed from the game.

NOON or MIDNITE?

Siena should have worked with Time Warner to get their games onto some channel somewhere locally...especially if they get ranked in the TOp 25.

That's how you build an off-again/on-again program into something people across the region give a hoot about

Go Siena Saints !!!

... If anything, the city could be criticized for NOT influencing the construction or requirements to construct affordable housing into larger market rate projects. Take that one step further - affordable housing requirements on development aren't even considered as part of the city's first comprehensive zoning code overhaul since 1968.
