Saints schedule released

While there may not be a Kansas or Pittsburgh on the schedule this season, the Siena men's basketball team should be put to the test by the likes of Temple, St. John's and Georgia Tech.

Fran McCaffery's club is coming off two consecutive trips to the NCAA Tournament and expectations couldn't be higher, especially since the school gave him a new eight-year extension back in April.

The team kicks off the season in Nashville, Tenn. against Tennessee State on Nov. 13 before opening up against Northeastern in what is rumored to be a nationally televised game on Tuesday, Nov. 17.

Two major highlights will be the trip to Atlanta to face former Siena coach Paul Hewitt and the Yellow Jackets on Dec. 2 and the annual game against crosstown rival UAlbany on Saturday, Dec. 5.

Here are the particulars.
