LOUDONVILLE, NY -- Siena Athletics has announced modifications to the upcoming Siena Basketball Banquet. The event will still take place as originally scheduled on Wednesday, April 18 at the Hilton Albany, however the banquet will feature only the women's basketball team.
"This year, we will honor only our women's team on the night of the banquet," said Siena College Vice President and Director of Athletics John D'Argenio. "We look forward to recognizing and celebrating the men's team, particularly graduating student athlete Kadeem Smithen, in an appropriate way at another time. We've made this decision in consultation with the players and leaders of both programs. Though we have adjusted the event to reflect these changes, the banquet will remain an evening of wonderful stories, great video highlights, and Siena spirit."
The Siena Basketball Banquet will begin with a cocktail reception at 6 p.m., followed by the main program at 7 p.m. The event will highlight the 2017-18 Siena Women's Basketball season. Coaches and student athletes from the women's team will be in attendance at the event, which includes a formal dinner, season and senior highlight videos, and an awards ceremony.
Tickets are priced at $75 for adults and $28 for children, and guests are also welcome to attend a pre-event reception which includes a cash bar.
