Will Siena Coach Mitch Buonaguro Survive This Season’s Debacle?

I am guessing this is the question burning on the minds of many Siena alumni and the school administration as well. A proud program like Siena doesn’t take losing easily and there has been much losing this season. Sunday was the latest and maybe the worst of all even though that is hard to quantify with the losses piling up. Blowing a nice lead to a bad St. Peters program will not help the coach’s cause.

The Saints led 39-32 at the break, but were outscored 40-23 in the second half and the Peacocks slapped down the Saints 72-62.

O.D. Anosike had great numbers in the first half then was stopped cold in the second. Anosike finished with 18 points and 16 rebounds but in the last 20 minutes the Peacocks held him to two points and six boards.

St.Peters grabbed the lead and some cushion taking a 55-48 lead late in the second half. Siena made a run and got within one with 4.09 left to play at 55-54. However the Peacocks outscored the Saints 17-8 down the stretch to win for just the eighth time against 16 losses and “improved” their conference mark to 3-11. Siena meanwhile is 6-10 (4-10 in the MAAC).

Desi Washington led Saint Peters with 24 points. Siena finds themselves looking up at every team in the MAAC except for the Peacocks. They have five games remaining in the regular season schedule, starting with Fairfield on Thursday night.
