Siena has been solid at home, with a 5-1 record for the year. They have won by an average of 7 points per game in those wins. Canisius is 3-3 on the road this year, but 3-1 in the last 4. However when they have lost on the road, it has been by an average of 19.6 points. This should be a great game, but Siena has been the more consistent team this season. Their star Manny Camper is also playing some of his best ball of the year. In their current three game win streak, he is shooting over 50% from the field, while averaging 19 points and 5 assists. Give me Siena to sneak out the cover.
