No business like Showbiz

LOUDONVILLE - Marc Brown is starting to realize what Monday's ceremony will mean to him.

“Unbelievable,” said Brown on the phone on Wednesday. “Words can't describe it.”

Brown's No. 4 will hang from the rafters in downtown Albany, alongside No. 10 of Troy native Billy Harrell and the No. 41 of Kenny Hasbrouck.

Brown, who was known by the nickname of "Showbiz" will have his number retired during halftime of Monday's Siena game against Florida Atlantic.

Brown and his team from New Jersey City University will play against RPI at 5:30 p.m.

Brown is the all-time leading scorer in Siena history, with 2,284 points and is second all-time on the career assists list (behind Ronald Moore) and fourth all-time in steals.

“I think there are going to be a lot of fans that remember what he did for this program,” said Athletic Director John D'Argenio. “I think he'll get a great ovation. A lot of people will say, ‘It's about time,’ which it is, so it'll be very exciting.”

Brown is remembered by many Siena fans as the best player to ever suit up for the Green & Gold.

“He was one of the most exciting players to wear a Siena uniform,” said classmate, teammate and current Siena color commentator, Tom Huerter.
