Only a handful of teams end the season with a win, even fewer end the season with a post season championship in division one basketball. The Siena Saints are one of just four in division one to finish their season holding up a championship trophy.

In game two of the best of three final the Saints admitted they weren't ready to go, but on Saturday morning, that wasn't the case at all.

Rob Poole was on fire scoring a game high 23 points. Brett Bisping added to his breakout season with 20 points, nine rebounds and the championship MVP. Siena won 81-68, capturing their 1st national post season title.

The Saints hosted Fresno State in the decisive game three of the CBI championship.
