Hasbrouck’s 32 poings lead Siena over Niagara 94-78
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP)—Kenny Hasbrouck scored 32 points and Edwin Ubiles added 25 as Siena beat Niagara 94-78 Friday night and remained tied with Rider and Loyola for first place in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference standings.
Charron Fisher, the nation’s leading scorer, had 31 points and 14 rebounds to lead Niagara (18-9, 11-6 MAAC). Tyrone Lewis had 17 points and Stanley Hodge added 11 for the Purple Eagles, who made 9-of-33 from 3-point range and got to the foul line just eight times.
The Saints (18-10, 12-5) jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead, and, for the second straight game, never trailed. They led 50-43 at halftime after a fast-paced first half that saw 82 field goal attempts. Siena shot 50 percent from the field before the break and committed just one turnover.
In order to secure the No. 1 seed and automatic NIT berth, the Saints would need a win at St. Peter’s on Sunday coupled with a Loyola loss at Marist.
