It’s a decision that Capital Region basketball fans have been waiting to hear for the last couple of months, and according to Mark Singelais of the Times Union, we finally have the answer: former Bishop Maginn standout Taran Buie will not be admitted to Siena College.

Buie is the half-brother of another former Bishop Maginn and Penn State star, Talor Battle. Buie also originally attended Penn State, but was shown the door after various issues. He then transferred to Hofstra, where he provided over 12 points per game this past season, but was again unceremoniously dismissed at season’s end.

In an interview with Singelais last month, Buie said he is aware of the mistakes he made in the past and wants to move forward:

I know that Siena is a very well-respected program and I don’t want to mark their name in a negative way or anything. But that’s not what I’m looking to do, anyway. I’m fully committed to better myself.

A member of the Siena College Athletic Department was contacted for this piece, but they are not allowed to comment on this story at the present time.
