The Saints, winners of the last three MAAC regular-season and tournament championships, figure to contend in the MAAC despite losing a class that included all-MAAC players Alex Franklin (last year's conference Player of the Year), Ronald Moore and Edwin Ubilies. ... Ryan Rossiter, the preseason MAAC Player of the Year, has lived up to or exceeded expectations early on.

Anosike (9.0 points, 4.0 rebounds) is the Saints' best hope for a third scoring option. ... Freshman point guard Rakeem Brookins (7.3 points, 3.5 assists) has played well after moving into the starting lineup last Saturday at Northeastern. ... Junior forward Owen Wignot (6.8 points) is shooting 55 percent (6-for-11) from 3-point range.

With a balanced scoring attack led by Justin Robinson, the Broncs have won four straight for the first time since late in the 2008-09 season. .... Robinson, who shared Player of the Week honors with Siena's Jackson last week, is averaging 17 points per game and shooting 52 percent from 3-point range. ... Novar Gadson, taking significant strides forward and drastically improving his shot selection, is averaging 13.6 points and shooting 65 percent (11-for-17) from 3-point range after shooting 29 percent last year. The junior from Philadelphia has scored in double figures in all five games, including a season-high 18 in a 73-63 win last Sunday over Loyola Marymount. ... Mike Ringgold is averaging 12.6 points and a team-high six rebounds. He scored 16 points last Sunday on 8-for-11 shooting. ... Brandon Penn, in his first year as a full-time starter, is averaging 6.2 points and shooting 50 percent (6-for-12) from 3-point range. ... Sophomore Jon Thompson has started all five games and is averaging 4.2 points in 19.6 minutes. ... Freshman Danny Stewart is averaging 4.6 points and 5.4 rebounds in 22 minutes.

Siena is dirt and we should run them out of the building. Don't get concerned with the name on the front of the jersey; this is a mere shadow of the Siena teams that ran roughshod over the league the past few years. They are mediocre at best. We must break them.

Rider must win this game, they have to do what ever it takes. IMO stop CJ let RR have 30 and Rider wins
