Cinderella Friday - Siena beats Vanderbilt

7:20 PM ET, March 21, 2008, St. Pete Times Forum, Tampa, FL

In a day of upsets # 13 seeded Siena has continued the trend beating the # 4 seed in the Midwest Region Vanderbilt in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. This game did not have the same drama as the earlier upsets by Western Kentucky the number 12 seed in the West Region and San Diego the number 13 seed in the West Region, both of those games were decided on last second shots in overtime. San Diego will face Western Kentucky in the second round in the West Region, meaning there will be at least one Cinderella team in the Sweet Sixteen.

This is Siena's fourth trip to the NCAA Tournament and they are now 3-3 during March Madness. Siena's other wins came in 1989 when they shocked number 3 seeded Stanford and in 2002 when they won the play in game against Alcorn State.

Siena will move on to the second round of March Madness where they will face the winner of the Midwest Region first round game between number 5 Clemson and number 12 Villanova.
