Siena goes back-to-back

The Saints used a big second half to defeat Niagara 77-70, win their second consecutive Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship and punch their ticket to the NCAA Tournament on Monday night. 

"I wasn't going to lose," said senior co-captain Kenny Hasbrouck, who played through a calf injury to score a team-high 19 points. 

It's will be the program's fifth trip to the "Big Dance."

"I'm so happy for them," said former Siena player Tay Fisher, who added that he would try to make the trip to the NCAA Tournament. 

The Saints will find out their dancing partner this Sunday.
