Siena gets Marist in MAAC 1st round

Before the Siena men's basketball team takes the floor on Sunday, to end the regular season against Iona, the Saints know their opponents in the postseason tournament.

With Saint Peter's losing 78-61 to Niagara, the Peacocks are the No. 10 seed, meaning Siena will play in the No. 8/9 matchup.

Siena will play Marist (one team will be No. 8, the other will be No. 9) on Friday March 8, at 7:30 p.m.

The Red Foxes and Saints split the season series, with Marist winning on Friday, 76-74, in Albany.

If Siena can beat Marist on Friday, they would get regular-season champion Niagara on Saturday, at 2:30 p.m. The Purple Eagles finished the regular season 13-5, and swept the Saints in two meetings.
