Winners of five in a row over Manhattan (4-15, 3-7), Siena (6-13, 1-9) looks to sweep the season series from the Jaspers for the second straight season. Siena leads the all-time series 37-19 and the Saints' 32 MAAC regular season wins over the Jaspers are the program's most against any conference school.
Siena's lone conference victory to date this season was an impressive 82-58 win over Manhattan on Jan. 5 in Riverdale. The Saints broke a 44-all tie early in the second half by ending the game on a 38-14 run. Siena held a 56-30 rebounding advantage and received double-doubles from both Meghan Donohue (15 points, 11 rebounds) and Tehresa Coles (14 points, 14 rebounds).
Both teams have struggled since that meeting as the Saints have lost seven in a row and the Jaspers have dropped seven of eight.
