We’re down to only 3 remaining former Saints, as Fred Shear continues his run through the bracket and has secured a place in the finals. Who will he face? We’ll know in 48 hrs as Kenny Hasbrouck is set to face Marc Brown. Both have the honor of having their numbers hang from the rafters. Let’s 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. Kenny also achieved Siena’s highest honor. He is one of only three players to have their number hanging from the TUC rafters.
Marc Brown (1): “Showbiz” played for the Saints from 1987-1991. He scored 32 points, including the winning free throws, in the 1989 NCAA tournament win against Stanford. The win was Siena’s first in the tournament. Marc topped that 32 point total three times in his career, setting a career high with 44 during his senior season, the second highest single game total in school history. His 816 points his senior year is the second highest season total, behind only Doremus Bennerman’s 858 in 1994. For his career Brown is Siena’s all-time leading scorer with 2,284 points. His point total was aided by his accuracy from behind the arc where he hit 42.3% of his shots. Despite all those converted field goals Brown was also a very capable distributer. He is a close second to Ronald Moore on the all-time assist list with 796, a 6.5 assist per game average. Marc’s 221 steals are also fourth in Siena history. In recognition of his accomplishments Brown achieved AP Honorable Mention All-American status in his senior season. He was inducted into the Siena Hall of Fame in 1998 and achieved the highest of honors when his jersey was retired during the 2010-11 season.
