Siena Saints

The Siena Saints are coming off a third-place finish in the MAAC last season and even more is expected in 2016-2017. The Saints return six of their top seven players from last season including leading scorer Brett Bisping who averaged 15.9 points and 10.4 rebounds per game.

The only player the Saints lost in the off-season who was part of the regular rotation was Ryan Oliver who averaged just over 7 points per game last season.

Siena is in position to win the MAAC this season and make the NCAA Tournament. Monmouth and Iona won’t make it easy for the Saints but there is no question 2016-2017 is the season where Siena can win the MAAC and make the NCAA Tournament.

2016-2017 Siena Saints Betting

The Saints will have virtually the same core of players from last season but they did add Kadeem Smithen a transfer from Richmond and three freshmen are also newcomers this season. The three newcomers are Khalil Richard, Thomas Huerter and Sammy Friday.

The Saints will be led by Brett Bisping and Javion Ogunyemi. They both averaged about 15 points per game last season and they were excellent on the boards. Siena was 15th best in the nation last season in rebounding margin at 7.8 per game.

Siena also returns Marquise Wright who averaged 14.5 points per game even though he missed a lot of time last season due to injury. The Saints also have Nico Clareth and Lavon Long who are double-digit scorers.

Siena Saints Picks

This is the season for Siena as both Bisping and Ogunyemi are seniors.  Anything less than winning the conference and making the NCAA Tournament will be considered a disappointment for this team. It won’t be easy for Siena as Iona is always a threat to win the conference and Monmouth is tough.  We should know how good Siena will be early in the season as they visit Kansas in mid-November.
