BUFFALO, N.Y. - Fresh off their largest road win in conference history, the red-hot Saints look to extend their winning streak to seven in a row when they conclude their annual Western New York trip at Canisius this afternoon. Gameday Central coverage begins at 1:30 p.m. with tip-off slated for 2 p.m. from the Koessler Athletic Center.
With a victory today, Siena (7-8, 5-0) would have their longest winning streak since reeling off 10 in a row from Feb. 5-Mar. 8, 2003. The Saints also take aim at their fifth consecutive road win, which would also be the program's longest in eight seasons.
But winning at the Koessler Athletic Center has been no easy task of late. The Saints have lost five of their last seven in Canisius' (5-11, 1-4) home building. The Griffs however have lost three in a row entering today, but boast a talented four-member freshman class which has already combined for a MAAC record six Rookie of the Week awards this season.
