Bisping, Ogunyemi, Clareth Take Honors
For the Siena Saints men's basketball team, it was a good haul in the end of season awards: The Saints, which finish the regular season as the No. 3 seed in the upcoming MAAC Tournament (they play Saturday night at 7:00 at the Times Union Center), had three players selected to all-conference teams.
Forward Brett Bisping was named a first-team all-MAAC selection after averaging a double-double this season. He averaged 15.8 points per game and 10.4 rebounds a contest. A double-double machine, Bisping had 18 boards in a senior night win on Sunday afternoon.
Javion Ogunyemi, the Troy High School graduate, earned second-team all-league honors after averaging 15.1 points per game (third on the team) and 6.3 rebounds.
Freshman Nico Clareth brought a ton of energy to the group this year and earned a spot on the all-Rookie team as a result. He had 24 points for the Green and Gold in the Sunday afternoon win.
Siena will play the winner of the No. 6 and No. 11 matchup on Saturday.
