ALBANY - Another one bites the dust.

The Saints led for the game's final 35 minutes, taking a lead as big as 11, with 2:19 to play.

Kyle Downey added 18 points, OD Anosike chipped in 14 and Rob Poole made 10 free throws.

Siena shot 25-for-30 (83.3%) from the free throw line and had only 14 turnovers. In the earlier matchup, the Saints committed a season-high 22 turnovers.

The Jaspers (11-5, 18-10) were led by George Beamon, who finished with 16 points, while Emmy Andujar added 11.
