PreGame: Your Siena Saints vs the Stags of Fairfield

Your hometown Siena Saints look to keep their hopes of gaining the 6 seed in the MAAC tournament alive tonight when they take on MAAC regular season Champion Fairfield Stags tonight at 7 on ESPN2.

.

The Saints come into the game off of a fantastic effort against America East member, and Brackbuster opponent, Maine Black Bears. Siena took advantage of a 17-4 second half run to put the Bears away for good. The Saints look to carry that momentum into a game against a Fairfield team that beat them by 17 in a game at the Times Union Center.

.

The Saints have had several players, including Senior Clarence Jackson, miss practice time with the flu, though all are expected to play tonight.

.

Siena needs to win both tonight’s matchup and Sunday’s game vs Marist, while hoping for a Canisius loss to either Manhattan or Loyola, to enter the tournament as the 6th seed. Why is this important? The Saints would be spared a play-in game as the 6, giving them one much needed extra day of rest.

.

Let’s go Saints!
