Siena women determined to end Danes' streak

Friday, Dec. 12, 2014
Despite losing two projected starters to season-ending injuries even before the 2014-15 campaign officially tipped off, the Siena College women’s basketball team has been a pleasant surprise.

But Siena will need to play a near-perfect game if the Saints hope to grab the Albany Cup away from local rival University at Albany in the first game of a women’s/men’s double-header at 5 p.m. Saturday at Times Union Center.
