Ubiles's knee an issue
Ubiles has only scored 33 points in the last four games, after finishing with a game-high 26 in the home opener against Northeastern.
That's when Ubiles, who has been wearing a brace on his knee, said he hurt his right knee.
"I don't remember hurting it in the game because that whole game I was playing great," Ubiles said. "After that is when it just hit me."
Ubiles said he was stretching his hip, when he turned his knee and heard it crack, but kept playing through what apparently is tendonitis.
“That can be very painful depending on where it is and how severe it is,” said Siena coach Fran McCaffery. “We just have to treat it and take it day-by-day with him. It’s unfortunate because he’s not playing the way we all know he’s capable of playing and he’s as frustrated as anybody, so we’re just going to stay positive with him, keep treating it and hopefully it will get better.”
Ubiles said his knee is getting better and he dealt with a similar issue during his freshman season.
"It just got really weak at first," Ubiles said. It's gotten a lot better then when it first happened."
While the Saints pulled out the victory on Saturday, they are going to need Edwin at full strength when they face Georgia Tech in Atlanta on Wednesday.
"We keep going to him and telling him to shoot the ball because he's a great player," said senior point guard Ronald Moore.
