Saints to Play For ‘Franciscan Cup’ Tonight
Tonight at the Times Union Center, the 7-4 Siena Saints take the floor against St. Bonaventure (7-2).
It's the second consecutive meaningful game for the Saints, who are coming off a 78-70 win over Albany in the 'Albany Cup.'
This game with the Bonnies is the "Franciscan Cup."
The Saints come in playing very good basketball - and they will fill up the stat sheet. Siena is averaging nearly 80 points a game this season as they have really worked on getting out into transition.
Offensively, the Saints have five players in double-figures and are led by Marquis Wright's 17.1 points per game. Brett Bisping checks in with 13.4 while Troy native Javion Ogunyemi has 12.5. Lavon Long and freshman Nico Clareth also average double-figures.
If the Saints are going to head into the holiday season with a win, they'll need to limit turnovers, as they average 16 of those per contest.
Game time is 7 p.m.
