NIagara 32, Siena 31 (half)
Either Niagara or Siena is just 20 minutes from the semifinals.
The first half saw a little bit of everything, as the Saints trail 32-31. They are in good position, which could be even better if they hadn't missed eight free throws.
Evan Hymes and Rob Poole each have nine points for Siena.
Antonie Mason leads the Purple Eagles with eight. Antoine's father, Anthony Mason, a former New York Knicks forward, is in attendance.
It was a physical half, with 20 fouls being called, including a technical to Rakeem Brookins.
Niagara lost starter Tahjere McCall early, when he tried to make a move and grabbed at his knee.
