The Siena Saints may be a young team this year, in fact one of the youngest in all of college basketball but that doesn't mean they're afraid to take on a super tough schedule. Siena and Albany men's hoops are both in the Gotham Classic this year along with the likes of Memphis and Louisville.

Jimmy Patsos and his Saints Basketball team landed in Memphis yesterday and are preparing to face the Tigers. Patsos sees improvement in his team and expects them to be up to the challenge against the Tigers. It would be a pretty considerable upset for the Saints to win but games like this one prepare Siena for Holy Cross and upcoming conference play. I say it would be an upset but I'm not ruling it out. this has been a Siena team that rises to the level of it's opponent so far this season even in defeat.
