The comforts of home have played big dividends this season for Siena. The Saints are unbeaten at the Times Union Center and they return home this Thursday night after suffering another loss on the road.

First things first, head coach Carm Maciariello's group will host Saint Peter's with its eyes on keeping its perfect record at home and a seventh straight win in downtown Albany.

The road struggles are well documented: Siena is 6-6 overall this season and all six losses have come away from home. The most recent was an 85-77 loss at Rider on Sunday, a game in which Elijah Burns wasn't feeling well limiting him to 22 minutes.

Coach Carm joined Big Board Sports on Wednesday morning to preview the matchup with a stingy defensive Saint Peter's squad and to diagnose some of the differing performances between at home and on the road.
