It's Hall of Fame Day Sunday with Siena basketball all-time great Kenny Hasbrouck '09 headlining this year's four-member Siena Athletic Hall of Fame class. Hasbrouck is playing professionally in Italy and unable to attend the ceremony. He joins Chris Alesio `89 (baseball), April London `09 (volleyball) and Sarah Mayer '09 (tennis). Alesio, London and Mayer will be inducted at a pregame reception at TASTE and recognized at halftime.

Hasbrouck was one of the most transformative student athletes in Siena history. He was named MAAC Rookie of the Year as a freshman, MAAC Second Team as a sophomore, MAAC First Team and MAAC Tournament MVP as a junior, and MAAC Player of the Year and MAAC Tournament MVP as a senior. His 1,917 career points stand fourth on the school's all-time list. Hasbrouck played the lead role on Siena's 2008 and 2009 MAAC Championship teams, each of which went on to win NCAA Tournament games (Vanderbilt and Ohio State).
