Siena losing streak hits 10 with loss to Iona
However, the Saints played well on Friday evening, but still couldn't snap a losing stretch that dates back to Thanksgiving.
Iona made plays late in the game and escaped with a 66-62 victory.
“It's very disappointing," said Siena coach Mitch Buonaguro. "I thought our kids played well enough to win.”
O.D. Anosike registered his 11th double-double, tying for game-high honors with 19 points and grabbing 15 rebounds. Rob Poole added 18 points for the Saints (0-3, 2-12).
Lamont "Momo" Jones led four players in double figures with 19 points for the Gaels (2-1, 8-6).
The Saints played without sophomore Trenity Burdine, who was suspended one game for an academic issue. Burdine was suspended for the first three games of the season after violating athletic department policy.
Siena next heads to Rider on Sunday, still in search of its first conference victory and trying to snap a 10-game losing streak.
