Siena Trip Journey of Discovery

Siena traveled 2,876 miles across the country to play three games here in the search for its basketball identity.

The Saints may not know yet if they're an inside team, an outside team or some combination of both. But there were moments of discovery, even as they concluded the tournament Sunday afternoon with a 77-60 loss to the University of San Diego.

"We're still a work in progress," said Siena coach Mitch Buonaguro. "We've got to get more production. We've got guys who have really produced, but we've got to get more of a nucleus of guys producing.

"We're not going to go on the road and beat a team like this with only three or four guys playing well. We've got to get a group of seven or eight guys and move forward with that group."

Senior forward O.D. Anosike is obviously the team's first option on offense. Anosike drew a double team virtually every time he touched the ball inside against the Toreros, but he still led the Saints with 19 points and 13 rebounds.
