The revised MAAC basketball schedule was released Monday, and the Siena teams will open with Dec. 11-12 games against Fairfield.

The men will open their conference season on the road, while the women will start with games at Alumni Recreation Center.

The MAAC had announced in mid-September that its men’s teams would play Tuesdays and Fridays, and its women’s teams would play Wednesdays and Saturdays. Then, on Nov. 7, the league announced it was moving to a scheduling model that includes both men’s and women’s teams playing Fridays and Saturdays. In the MAAC’s current format, two schools will play each other on back-to-back days at one site, with the men playing at one school and the women playing at the other.

Siena’s teams have a bye week during the MAAC’s Jan. 8-9 batch of games, while the entire league is leaving the week of Feb. 22 clear for make-up games due to postponements related to the coronavirus pandemic.

The MAAC tournament remains scheduled for March 9-13 in Atlantic City.
