Rogers leaving Siena men’s basketball

The Siena men’s basketball team’s leading scorer from the 2021-22 season entered into the NCAA transfer portal Monday evening.

Both the Siena athletic department and Colby Rogers, a second-team All-MAAC selection during his only year with the Saints, confirmed that the 6-foot-4 guard is exiting from head coach Carmen Maciariello’s program.

Rogers confirmed his departure with a social-media post in which he thanked “Coach Carm, the entire coaching staff, and Siena College,” while Siena released a statement.

“We wish Colby the best as he pursues other opportunities,” Maciariello said via the school’s statement.

Rogers spent two seasons at Cal Poly before transferring last year to Siena. With the Saints, Rogers averaged a team-best 14.1 points and made 42.9% of his 3-point attempts.

Rogers is the second Siena player to enter into the transfer portal. Aidan Carpenter left the Siena program shortly after the team’s season ended with a loss to Quinnipiac in the MAAC quarterfinals, and Carpenter recently announced he was transferring to Sacred Heart.

Rogers has two seasons of playing eligibility remaining, but will need to sit out the 2022-23 season — since he previously transferred — unless he receives an NCAA waiver to play right away.

Siena finished 15-14 last season.
