Siena coach Jimmy Patsos was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Coach of the Year by the college basketball website CollegeHoopsDaily.com . After the Saints finished with a record of 8-24 overall and just 4-14 in the conference in 2012-2013, Patsos reenergized the entire program in just his first year at the helm.

With an influx of young talent and significant improvement of the returning players, this year’s team has a record of 15-17 overall. A winning MAAC record of 11-9 earned the Saints a 5th seed and a first round bye in the MAAC tournament.

As reported earlier, signs are pointing to the possibility of Siena being granted a postseason tournament bid to the CBI whose field will be announced on Sunday. Such an opportunity would provide Patsos and the Saints the chance to add to an already successful turnaround.
