Saints, Danes in final Busters

Siena will host Radford Feb. 24, and University at Albany will visit Fairfield Feb. 23, in the final ESPN BracketBuster tournament.

Siena is 4-3 in previous BracketBuster events, while UAlbany is 1-3.

The BracketBuster tournament was put together to give mid-major programs a chance to strengthen their schedule in preparation for a possible bid to the NCAA tournament. It also helped those same mid-majors complete their schedule for the next season, because their opponent was guaranteed to play them the next season at the other team's court.

But the tournament appears to have run its course. The series will be discontinued after this season.
