Coaches Show debuts on Time Warner Cable Sports Thursday at 6:30 p.m. as well.

The women are looking to build off their win Sunday at Rider, which vaulted the Saints back into the top half of the conference standings. Following Friday's game, the Saints face arguably their stiffest test yet when they welcome six-time defending MAAC Champion Marist to the ARC Sunday for a 2 p.m. tip in the annual Gold Rush and Dance Clinic game.
The Dance Clinic marks the second performance from Capital Region area youngsters who will also perform at halftime of Friday night's men's game. The Siena men are riding high following their huge win over conference leading Iona Monday night which marked the surging Saints' fifth straight home win.
Following Friday night's affair, the Saints will look to use some of their home magic on the road Sunday when they go for their first MAAC victory away from home this season. The Saints take on Rider in a 2 p.m. tip off in the Broncs' Zoo, looking to complete the season series sweep.
The Siena Basketball Coaches Show airs weekly throughout the basketball season on Thursday nights from 6-7 p.m. on WVCR 88.3 FM "The Saint." All broadcasts are archived upon their completion online at SienaAllAccess.com. Meanwhile, the Saints Alive! Coaches Show will air again on Friday at 6:30 p.m., as well as Saturday and Sunday at 10 a.m.
