Siena trying to avoid a ‘Giants’ problem Sunday

- Associated Press - Saturday, January 7, 2012

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Siena is making an interesting offer to its college basketball fans: Come see the Saints play on Sunday _ and watch the New York Giants, too.

Sunday's NFL playoff game between the Giants and the Atlanta Falcons will be shown live on the scoreboard at Siena's home game against Niagara on Sunday.

Both games start at 1 p.m, and Siena officials say they want to keep fans from having to choose one game or the other. The Giants-Falcons game will be streamed until its conclusion.

The Giants have a large fan base in New York's Capital region, especially since the team has held training camp in Albany for 15 of the past 16 seasons. The only exception was this season, when the lockout forced the team to change its plans.
