UAlbany, Siena post victories

Sophomore Logan Aronhalt scored a career-high 27 points and also grabbed 10 rebounds as the University at Albany posted a 72-46 non-conference victory over Fairleigh Dickinson.

The Great Danes also got 13 points from senior Tim Ambrose and 10 more from sophomore Jon Iati.

"Our team defense was how we won," UAlbany coach Will Brown said. "We are getting better and more comfortable playing the zone and contesting jump shots."

Mike Scott scored 23 points for the Knights (0-2), but no other Fairleigh Dickinson player scored in double figures.

Out in Boston, Siena picked up their first win of the season, and an impressive one in that, as they defeated Northeastern 84-68.

The victory is coach Mitch Buonaguro's first win as head coach for the Saints (1-2).

The Huskies (2-1) are a quality team.

"That’s as good a road win as we’ve had since we’ve been here, from start to finish,” Buonaguro said afterwards. “That was a great road win. I thought Northeastern was a really good team. Our guys were focused, they executed the game plan, they were tough. Our effort was phenomenal. That’s a great win. I couldn’t be happier for the seniors, and the rest of the kids. I thought it was total domination actually.”

Ryan Rossiter and Clarence Jackson combined for 52 points and that was really all Siena needed.

Both teams are in action Tuesday. Siena plays national runner-up Butler. UAlbany hosts Iona.
