The Siena Saints Suffer Their 13th Double Digit Loss Of The Season
Losing is 1 thing. Not being competitive is totally another. Too many times this season the Saints have lost by at least 10 points. It happened again Saturday at the Times Union Center as the Saints were flogged by Loyola of Maryland 80-57.
Loyola stretched an 8 point half time lead and put the game out of reach by dominating the 2nd half. Dylon Cormier led the Greyhounds with 24 points and Robert Olson chipped in 20 points. Olson who was playing in his 120th game as a member of the Greyhounds, 4 shy of the school record.
Loyola dominated in almost every statistical catagory including rebounds, steals, blocks, had less turnovers as well, all the things that equal victory. Siena starters hit only 2 long ball shots compared to 8 for Loyola. In any terms or definitions this game was a blowout!
Trenity Burdine led Siena with 12 points. The only other Saint in double digits was O.D. Anosike with just 10. The leading rebounder also had but 7 glass cleaners.
The good news is you are a tired of losing Siena fan. No games until next Sunday,the 24th of February when Siena will play a bracket buster game against Radford. The other good news is there are only 3 games left in the regular season. And 1 last piece of good news for Siena. Despite their struggles they aren’t in last place in the MAAC. That spot is reserved right this moment for Saint Peters University.
