Siena plays for NCAA spot tonight

ronald moore

Ronald Moore and the Saints are playing their third-straight NCAA tournament spot.

The whole season for the Siena's men's basketball team has been pointing to tonight's MAAC tournament championship game. With a win, the Saints are headed to the NCAA tournament.

This year's team is one of the best ever at Siena. It features the conference player of the year (Alex Franklin), along with two other first-teamers (Ronald Moore and Ryan Rossiter), a second-teamer (Edwin Ubiles) and a third-teamer (Clarence Jackson). The Saints only lost one game during conference play. Moore continues to lead Division 1 in assists/game. And the Saints have won 37 straight games at the TU Center.

Siena faces Fairfield, the MAAC tournament's #2 seed, tonight. The Saints have already beaten the Stags twice -- 81-73 at Fairfield and 69-67 at the TU Center in early February.

The game starts at 7 pm. It's on ESPN2.
