Siena (0-1) and Fairleigh Dickinson (0-2) are both in search of their first wins of the 2013-14 season. The Saints haven't played in eight days since the season-opening Albany Cup loss. The Knights dropped their home opener vs. MAAC foe Manhattan Sunday and lost at Army Thursday night.
The Saints won last year's season opener between the programs 76-56 in Albany, making head coach Ali Jaques victorious in her Siena head coaching debut. The Saints' 76 points, 20-point margin of victory, nine three-pointers and 51 rebounds would all prove to be season-highs.
