Siena Falls to St. Peters in MAAC Contest
Trailing by 13 points at halftime, the Siena men's basketball team made a frantic comeback, but still fell to St. Peters by a score of 72-68.
The Saints are now 5-4 overall and 1-1 in MAAC play. This loss came after a blowout win of Manhattan on Friday night in the league opener.
Siena had four players in double-figures in the loss, including 20 points from Marquis Wright. They got 12 from Nico Clareth, 11 from Javion Ogunyemi and 10 from Lavon Long.
Siena turned the ball over 14 times in the loss compared to just nine assists.
Siena has looked good on offense this year, and that will be put to the test when they take on UAlbany this upcoming Saturday in the Albany Cup. The game (7 p.m., Times Union Center), will come down to which team can impose their style on the other. UAlbany will look to slow the game down, while the Saints will look to push the tempo and force the pace.
