ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – The St. Bonaventure men’s basketball game against Siena on Tuesday, Dec. 4, will be broadcast nationally on the NBC Sports Network and has been moved to a 9 p.m. start in the Reilly Center.
The game – originally scheduled for 7 p.m. – becomes the reigning Atlantic 10 Champions 12th regular-season contest which will be shown on TV, including three national broadcasts.
The first came on Nov. 14 when the Bonnies went on the road and defeated Cornell, 72-68, in a game which was also broadcast by the NBC Sports Network.
Bonaventure will look to retain the Franciscan Cup, which it claimed last year at Siena with a 64-58 victory. SBU has won each of the last two meetings against the Saints as it also took an 82-79 decision during the 2010-11 campaign.
