Well it was nice while it lasted. It just didn’t last long enough. Siena’s 2 game winning streak was no match for Niagara Thursday night as they were flogged 87-64.

A close game at half became a blowout in the 2nd half. Niagara led 40-34 at the half and then pulled away in the last 20 minutes 47-30.

Antoine Mason led the Purple Aces with 23 points, hitting 8 of his 14 shots from the floor. The Aces came out shooting aces in the 2nd half, opening the half on a 27-7 run that included 4 hits from  beyond the 3 point line. Niagara is now 7-2 in their last 9 games overall, and 7-1 at home this year.

The road has not been kind to the Saints, especially in conference play where they have now dropped 13 of their past 14 road MAAC games.

The recent good feeling for Siena held up in the 1st half but crumbled quickly in the 2nd half. O.D. Anosike led the saints with 15 points. Siena shot the ball well enough to win a big road game but their defense was offensive. Niagara  shot over 50% from the floor and hit exactly half their 3 point shots.

The Saints fall to 4-14 overall and they are lagging in conference play with a woeful 2-5 record. Only St. Peters and Marist are lower in conference standings.

Saturday the 2 game road trip concludes at Canisius. The Golden Griffins are 11-7 overall and 4-3 in the MAAC. The ballgame tips at 2:00 P.M.
