GAMEDAY: Siena vs. Princeton
|J.S. Carras/The Record|
The Tigers are 6-6 and have won five of their last six games.
Siena will be squaring off against a Princeton team that has a lot of size, which will be a challenge for Brandon Walters and O.D. Anosike.
It will be the first game for the Saints since freshman guard Davonte Beard decided to transfer.
“He was a good player," said senior Kyle Downey. "But we just have to move on from here.”
Siena will be looking to avenge last year's 86-77 overtime loss to Princeton.
“We felt like we should have won that game," Downey said.
