Saint Peter's 63, Siena 58

ALBANY - The Siena men's basketball team let one slip away on Friday evening.

Up 16 points in the first half, the Saints scored just 12 points in the game's final 11 minutes, falling 63-58 to Saint Peter's.

The Peacocks (4-8, 5-18) swept the Saints (5-7, 10-12) this season and have now took all four meetings from the past two seasons.

The last team to sweep Siena two years in a row was when Marist did so three years in a row, from 2004-07.

OD Anosike's stretch of 17 consecutive double-doubles ended, as he finished with nine points and a game-high 13 rebounds.

Darius Conley led four Saint Peter's players in double figures with 15 points.

The Peacocks went on an 18-3 run over an eight-minute span to take the lead for good. Saint Peter's scored 44 points in the second half and shot an incredible 63.6 percent (14-22) from the field.

The Saints head back out on the road on Sunday, when they take on Fairfield, at 3:30 p.m.
