Jalen Pickett and the Siena Saints couldn’t wide a wave of momentum to the NCAA Tournament, falling short in the MAAC Tournament earlier this week.
That’s the bad news. The good? Before any doors opened to the idea that Pickett would leave for the NBA Draft, he shut them by claiming the Saints would be back next season for the MAAC Championship.

While a lot of players say pretty much whatever right after a game, and shouldn’t be held accountable if they later change their minds, Pickett is interesting in that he’s an intriguing NBA Draft prospect, but experts rank him all over the board.
CBB Today recently wrote about Jalen Pickett and how excellent he is. When he returns next season for Siena, it is safe to assume he’ll take a relatively massive jump in development, likely being one of the very best players in the entire conference.
As for the Siena Saints, it won’t just be Pickett the program is returning. It’s why the young guard’s statement about contending for a MAAC title should be taken seriously.
