LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. - Siena goes for its third win in four games when the Saints host Loyola Saturday afternoon here at the ARC. Gameday Central coverage begins right here at SienaSaints.com at 1:30 p.m.
The Saints (3-8, 1-1) will be looking to bounce back following an 87-71 loss Wednesday night at Iona. Siena's offense has carried the team of late, averaging 72.0 points the past three games - the highest three game scoring average in nearly four years.
Siena faces a difficult test though today in Loyola (4-9, 0-2). The Greyhounds posted a program record 15 MAAC wins last season and tied the team record with 21 wins overall. Loyola finished second in the MAAC a year ago, made their first WNIT Appearance and won their first-ever postseason game.
Loyola was picked to finish second this year as well, but has been scuffling of late. They've lost four straight entering today including their first two conference games at home.
Siena is 16-6 all-time at home vs. Loyola, but the series has been more evenly contested of late. The teams have split the past eight meetings here in Loudonville and the Saints lead the all-time series 27-21.
