Dear Friends,


Well, we have closed-out the first decade of the 21st century. In some ways the last year of the decade ended like the first. Themen’s basketball teamwon the regular-season championship in both years (of course this past year the teamwent a bit further), our athletes graduated at envious rates, service to the community by our athletes and coaches was exemplary and the decade was bookended with the hiring of a newmen’s basketball coach.


Even though the opening and closing of this decade have similarities, there has beenmuch change and progress. The success of themen’s basketball programthis past year and through this decade (fourMAAC championships, four NCAA Tournament appearances and three NCAA wins, and one NIT appearance) has propelled Siena toward elitemid-major status.


Along the way we have incrementally improved all of our teams, our facilities, our support services to student-athletes and coaches and have enhanced revenue tomake it all possible. This annual report will reveal the success stories of 2009-10 and introduce you to the student- athletes who embody the spirit of Siena.


Your athletic department continues to grow, adjust, adapt, adopt andmake necessary changes so that the student-athletes, alumni and friends can talkwith pride about being a Siena Saint.We are constantly looking to change and improve. It could be using technology to keep you in touch with your favorite Siena team, enlarging our premium seating programat the Times Union Center, partnering with Siena’s enrollmentmanagement office to assist the college in its diversity efforts or reconfiguring our student-athlete advisory council (SAAC) to give the student-athletes lessons in leadership.


While we had a good 2009-10, all of us in the athletic department can do better. The expectations for all of us will be highermoving forward.While we value success in competition, graduating our student-athletes is paramount and we hold in high regard traits like humility, respect, discipline, integrity, acceptance and accountability. My expectation is that everymember of the athletic department will hold these same values and will bemembers in good standing in Siena’s community.


Change is inevitable and we will continue tomake changes, but those changes will not deviate fromour educationalmission or Siena’s Franciscan values and tradition.


Enjoy this annual report and read it knowing that everyone in the athletic department values your support and works intently every day to prove it!


Go Saints! John D’Argenio
