Siena rides a season-long three-game win streak in to its Saturday night showdown with MAAC contender Quinnipiac at Times Union Center. The Bobcats are the nation's top rebounding team, and they make their first trip to Albany as a conference member.
"They're better than us, they're tougher than us, they're more physical than us," Jimmy Patsos said. "But we're home, and maybe our crowd can makeup the difference. At home a crowd can energize you. We'd like to get 7,000 fans in there, because I'll tell you one thing this group is working hard, it's a group you should be proud of."
