If Mitch Buonaguro’s club is going to find the .500 mark again this year they are going to have to go on a serious tear and soon. Falling to 2-9 on the young season, the Saints got trounced by Manhattan College 75-55 Sunday afternoon.

Manhattan, playing without leading scorer George Beamon nonetheless scored a season high in points. Siena made a run to slice an early deficit down to a bucket 38-36. They got no closer.

Led by Junior forward Rhamel Brown who had a career high 21 points Manhattan picked up just their third win of the year against five losses.

Siena was led by sophomore Rakeem Brookins who also had a career high finishing with 19 points. However the point guard was loose with the basketball turning it over seven times. O.D. Anosike had another double-double with 16 points and 13 boards.

Siena now takes two weeks off for classroom stuff and break and it probably comes at an ideal time. The Saints have lost seven straight and their 2-9 start is the worst since they joined division I 36 years ago. Siena returns to the court on December 23rd when they play at Fordham.
