Butler 37, Siena 29 (Half)

ALBANY - This is shaping up to be a good finish.

It has the feel of a postseason game, despite being played two days shy of Thanksgiving.

Ryan Rossiter is dominating the game, so much so that the Siena stats people gave him an extra basket. When everything was straightened out, Rossiter finished the first 20 minutes with 14 points and nine rebounds to lead the Saints.

O.D. Anosike added six for Siena, which led 13-5 at one point.

Butler's Matt Howard had a tough time getting on track, missing his first six shots, before he hit a 3-pointer. He did draw four charges and leads his team with seven points.

The Bulldogs are playing without Ronald Nored, who injured his head/eye in the game's second minute.

Garrett Butcher, Chase Stigall
and Andrew Smith each have six points for the Bulldogs, while the team's leading scorer Shelvin Mack has just four.

Butler is outscoring Siena 22-0 in bench points. Siena is also 0-for-3 from the free throw line.
