Dwayne Archbold Named To Siena Hall of Fame

Former Siena Saint Dwayne Archbold is one of nine former Siena student-athletes who will be inducted in the 2011 class of the Siena Athletic Hall of Fame. They will be honored in a ceremony on December 3rd.

Dwayne  played for the Saints from 1998-2002. He was a member of two NCAA tournament squads, the 1999 squad that fell to Arkansas, and the 2002 squad that shocked the MAAC and then defeated Alcorn State in the opening game. He showed consistent improvement over his four years, seeing his scoring average rise from 7 ppg to 19.9 ppg his senior season. He led the team in scoring his junior and senior season totaling 1644 points for his career, good for 8th on the all-time list. His ability from beyond the arch helped to bolster those numbers. Dwayne is 6th in Saint’s history in three-point field goals made with 193. Archbold was also a capable rebounder, averaging 4.8 rpg for his career, 630 total, 16th all-time. His averages of 7.2 rpg his senior season and 6 his junior season are the 10th and 11th best seasons in Saint’s history.

His MVP performance in the 2002 MAAC tournament was truly amazing.  He scored 36 points in the quarter finals against Marist and finished with  111 points in four games for an average of 27.7ppg. This ranks third in the last ten years in all conference tourneys.

Dwayne went on to have a successful professional career overseas playing for five seasons in Belgium, Germany, France and the Netherlands.

    Archbold was an outstanding player – well deserved honor. He had a tremendous senior year and was an exciting player to watch. I remember him in the '02 MAAC tourney and he was lights-out! He was definitely a HOF player.
