Saints Host Stags

Siena takes on Fairfield Monday night at the Times Union. Center in their first matchup of the season. Tip off is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

Part of the success is due to the return of Trenity Burdine who has averaged 12.7 points and 5.7 rebounds while shooting 63% (15-24) from the field in the three games since returning from a six game academic suspension.

Fairfield (13-10, 5-6) enters the game in 6th place in the MAAC and currently on a three game winning streak after a 69-59 win over Rider on Friday.
