Rossiter: "Things need to get better"

ALBANY - That was the feeling after Siena's Friday night's 72-55 slightly embarrassing loss to Fairfield.

It wasn't embarrassing because of the opponent, the Stags are good. It was more the second half and how the Saints didn't have a shot to win in the second half.

Coach Mitch Buonaguro gave more credit to Fairfield, then took away from his team.

Siena wasn't good in the second half, as they basically were giving up layups and not connecting on anything offensively.

"Things need to get better," senior Ryan Rossiter said.

Rossiter did say the team is still on the same page and people aren't pointing fingers, but somebody needs to step up and lead this team to a victory on Monday.

The Saints are 0-4 at home for the first time in the school's Division I history.

The loss last night snapped a 28-game consecutive winning streak against conference opponents for Siena and also dropped them out of a first place or a first place tie in the MAAC standings for the first time since the 2007-08 season.

The Saints' next MAAC game is in Albany, on Jan. 3, 2001, against Iona.

Also, ESPN released a new bracketology and they have the Gaels playing as a No. 14 seed in Tampa, against Tennessee.

Here are the current MAAC standings.
Fairfield 2-0, 6-3
Iona 2-0, 6-3
St. Peter's 2-0, 4-4
Marist 2-0, 2-8
Rider 1-1, 6-4
Siena 1-1, 2-6
Canisius 0-2, 4-5
Loyola (Md.) 0-2, 3-5
Manhattan 0-2, 2-7
Niagara 0-2, 2-7
