…right into the top 25 in the RPI rankings! How about that?! For you non-sports types, that means that the Siena Saints Mens Basketball team is ranked right up there with the national powerhouses such as Syracuse, Georgetown, etc.
Okay, it just means that they are REALLY REALLY GOOD! Undefeated so far in the MAAC this season and are on a rampage to March Madness. They are even getting some national coverage!
Sports Illustrated had a thing or two to say about the Saints.
Siena may have fallen off the radar after the Saints lost all three of their games at the Old Spice Classic in Orlando in November, but now they have won 12 of their last 13, they’re undefeated in the MAAC and they’re ranked 20th in the RPI. No team will want to see its name pop up next to Siena’s on Selection Sunday.
He then goes on to rank them #25 in the country in his own personal rankings. I’ll take it.
They will be also be playing in Bracket Busters tournament that will be on ESPN and an ESPN writer already had some decent things to say about the team.
Wow. Yep, that’s my alma mater! Not bad for a little ole college in Loudonville. While I’m not a huge basketball fan, and I don’t follow the Saints games that closely, I do keep an eye on them, go to an occasional game and get real excited when they make the NCAA tourney. It’s fun!
