The 2012-13 season features home games against Atlantic 10 contender UMass, 2012 NCAA Tournament participant Vermont, UAlbany, a to-be-determined ESPN BracketBusters opponent, and nine MAAC games (more games to be scheduled).

Siena is coming off a 14-17 season and a MAAC Tournament semifinal appearance. The Saints return the nation’s leading rebounder OD Anosike, the likely Preseason Player of the Year in the MAAC, and freshmen standouts Evan Hymes and Rob Poole. The Saints also hope to welcome back five talented players who sat out the 2011-12 season: junior forward Davis Martens, sophomores Rakeem Brookins and Trenity Burdine, and freshmen Lionel Gomis and Imoh Silas. Siena will welcome newcomers Richard Audo (guard, Orangeville, Ontario) and Brett Bisping (forward, Morton, Ill.).
