“Bagels and Basketball” with Jimmy Patsos at B’nai Sholom Reform Congregation

You’ve seen Siena College men’s basketball coach Jimmy Patsos roaming the sidelines during Saints games at the Times Union Center.

Now get up close and personal with one of the Capital Region’s best-known sports figures.

B’nai Sholom Reform Congregation will host “Bagels and Basketball” with Jimmy Patsos on Sunday, October 30, at 10:30 a.m. B’nai Sholom is located at 420 Whitehall Road, Albany, New York.

Admission is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

                Entering his fourth season at Siena, Patsos will talk about Saints basketball and his thoughts on the upcoming season. He also will describe what it was like winning a national championship at Maryland in 2002. The program will include time for questions and answers, giving the audience a chance to “ask the Coach.”

                Patsos is known as one of the most entertaining coaches in college basketball, with The Bleacher Report calling him “college basketball’s quirkiest coach.” Patsos led Siena to the CBI Championship in his first season as head coach, the only national college basketball title the school has ever won. This past season, Siena finished third in the MAAC with a 21-13 record overall.
