The Siena men's basketball team released their non-conference schedule this afternoon and it's quite impressive.

Home dates with Navy (Nov. 16), St. Bonaventure (Nov. 21), Fordham (Dec. 12), Princeton (Dec. 22) and the annual UAlbany clash for the Capital Cup (Dec. 5) highlight Siena’s 2011-12 men’s basketball non-conference schedule.

In addition to the five home matchups, the Saints will play five road games: the four released Thursday and an ESPNU BracketBusters contest to be announced in the coming weeks.

Siena will play UMass in the inaugural Basketball Hall of Fame Holiday Showcase at the MassMutual Center in Springfield on December 9 at 8 p.m., site of the 2012 MAAC Basketball Championships.

Siena travels to Georgia Tech Wednesday, November 23. The Saints knocked off the Yellow Jackets 62-57 in Albany last season and 76-68 in the 1994 NIT.  The Saints also visit Mt. St. Mary’s (Nov. 19), Vermont (Nov. 26) and Florida Atlantic (Dec. 28).

The 18-game 2011-12 MAAC schedule will likely be released in September.
