LOUDONVILLE — Without ever playing a game for the Siena men’s basketball program, Kyle Arrington is leaving the Saints.
In a statement released Friday through the school’s athletic department, Siena head coach Carmen Maciariello confirmed the player’s departure from the program.
“We wish Kyle the best as he moves on from our program,” said Maciariello, whose program has one open scholarship for the 2021-22 season.
Arrington joined the Siena program last year. He sat out the season, during which he rehabilitated a knee injury.
A 6-foot-10, 262-pound center, Arrington played at Western Illinois during the 2019-20 season, averaging 4.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in 12.6 minutes per game as a junior. Before that, Arrington played two seasons for Kirkwood Community College in Iowa where his teams finished a combined 55-10 and won a NJCAA Division-II national title in 2019.
Siena finished 12-5 last season and won a share of the MAAC regular-season championship before falling in the MAAC quarterfinals. The Saints’ 2021-22 season starts with a Nov. 9 game at St. Bonaventure.
