Tonight we have two Saint greats competing for the 2000s bracket championship and a trip to the All Time Saint Final Four. Kenny Hasbrouck, coming off an incredibly close matchup with Ronald Moore, will go up against Alex Franklin who edged out Ryan Rossiter in the previous round. Heres a look at the matchup:

Kenny Hasbrouck (1): Kenny played for the Saints from 2005-2009 and was one of the corner stones of the most successful era of Saints basketball. During his tenure the Saints went to two NCAA tournaments, winning games against Vanderbilt and an OT thriller against Ohio State. Kenny finished his career with 1,917 points, 4th all time. In his four years at Siena his lowest scoring average was 12.4 during his freshman campaign. During the 2006-07 season Kenny scored 36 pts vs MAAC opponent Rider, a feat he almost equaled a year later vs MAAC rival Marist when he scored 35. Kenny wasn’t just a great scoring option, he could also distribute the rock. His 331 assists rank 12th on the Saints all time list. Oh and did we mention his 248 career steals ranks first all-time? For his efforts Kenny achieved national and conference recognition by being named to the AP All-American Honorable Mention team and earning MAAC Player of the Year Honors in 2009.
