UAlbany-Siena Basketball Dec. 1 at the Times Union Center
The crosstown rivalry between UAlbany and Siena continues on Saturday, Dec. 1 when the two schools play a men's and women's basketball doubleheader at the Times Union Center.
The men will meet for the 47th time since the series began in 1940. Last year's game produced a double-overtime thriller, with Siena winning, 76-75, before a crowd of more than 11,000 fans at the downtown arena. The series was renewed following a 24-year hiatus in 2001, the Great Danes' third season as a NCAA Division I program. Since then, the yearly matchup has averaged 10,428 fans.
The UAlbany women upended the Saints for the first time since the series was renewed last year.
Women 5:00 p.m.
