UAlbany-Siena Rivalry Game Heads Uptown

Siena and UAlbany logos
Siena and UAlbany take the rivarly game uptown this year.

The biggest college basketball game of the year in the Capital Region has a new home this year. For the first time in 40 years, the University at Albany-Siena College rivalry game is heading uptown to the UAlbany campus. The women’s teams play at 3 p.m. while the men tipoff at 7. On the men’s side, the site of the game has been a subject of fierce debate between the two programs in recent years — and the debate flared up again this week. Joining us to preview the matchup is Pete Iorizzo, sports editor of the Albany Times Union.

A lifelong resident of the Capital Region, Ian joined WAMC in late 2008 and became news director in 2013. He began working on Morning Edition and has produced The Capitol Connection, Congressional Corner, and several other WAMC programs. Ian can also be heard as the host of the WAMC News Podcast and on The Roundtable and various newscasts. Ian holds a BA in English and journalism and an MA in English, both from the University at Albany, where he has taught journalism since 2013.
