Saints Fall to Manhattan in Triple-OT
After beating Manhattan by 35 points just a month ago, the Siena men's basketball team fell on the road at the Jaspers in a grueling triple-overtime matchup.
The loss moves the Saints to 9-6 (2-2 in MAAC play). Siena is now 1-2 without star Marquis Wright, who is going to miss 6-8 weeks with a stress fracture in his foot.
The Saints got double-figures from four players on the night: Javion Ogunyemi had 26 points, Brett Bisping had 20, Ryan Oliver had 16 and Nico Clareth had 13.
The Saints out-rebounded the Jaspers 48-43 in the loss.
"Just a great, competitive game," Siena coach Jimmy Patsos said after the game (taken from SienaSaints.com). "That was a great basketball game. We came up a little short. We learned a lot. My freshmen are growing up. We had a couple chances, so you can't complain."
Interestingly enough, this game wasn't the only triple-overtime game in the NCAA on Monday night. Kansas and Oklahoma went triple-OT in Lawrence, with Kansas coming out on top.
