Siena Rolled By Wisconsin, 92-65
Two days after getting beat by defending national champion Duke to open the season, the Siena men's basketball team took a crack at defending national runner-up Wisconsin.
The Saints were blitzed by the Badgers, losing 92-65.
Siena still did some good things, with three players in double-figures, including freshman Nico Clareth's game-high 21. They also got 17 from Marquis Wright and 14 from Lavon Long. They also only turned the ball over 10 times while forcing 10.
The main issues for Siena on the night were rebounding and outside shooting: The Saints were outrebounded by 11 and shot 3-16 from behind-the-arc. Those skillsets have to improve if the Saints are to be serious contenders in the MAAC.
Siena wasn't helped by playing a motivated Wisconsin team that was coming off an embarrassing season-opening loss to Western Illinois.
Bronson Koenig led the Badgers with 23 points on 8-14 shooting.
Siena is 0-2 and will play on Friday against Radford. That game will be played in Smithfield, R.I.
