These two stories will not rile up the blood. Siena came out with a tentative non-conference schedule and says they could play one more game but are not actively searching for it. Siena will play St. John’s in Philadelphia. I am surprised that Siena could not pair another Midwest game on that Northern Iowa trip. Teams must be afraid to play the Saints.
Also the Times Union Center is considered as a venue for the MAAC Basketball Championships for 2012-2014. It would not be considered a shocking decision if the conference chose to keep the games in Albany.
