Burns Sets Career-High in Siena’s First Home Game in a Month
After more than a month of road games, Siena finally returned home to the Times Union Center on Saturday night and Elijah Burns showed an extreme level of comfort. The Troy, NY native and La Salle product turned in a career-high 28 points in Siena's 81-71 win over Bucknell.
Burns added eight rebounds to his scoring efforts and the Saints snapped a four-game losing streak. Those four games all came on the road and were the only games Siena played in the last 38 days.
For a team that is now 3-0 at home this season, there is great news ahead for Siena. The win on Saturday night over Bucknell was the start of a four game stretch at home for the Saints. Next up is the first MAAC game of the season; vs Canisius on Monday night.
