Siena 48, St. Bonaventure 38 (half)
Even with freshman Javion Ogunyemi going down with what was reported as an ankle injury and junior Rob Poole being held scoreless, the Saints lead St. Bonaventure 48-38 at the half.
Siena shot 47 percent (16-34) from the field, getting great play from Brett Bisping (8 pts, 5 reb) and Imoh Silas (6 pts, 4 reb) off the bench.
The Bonnies were led by Youssou Ndoye, who scored 11 points in the first 20 minutes.
The Saints have never claimed the Franciscan Cup in three previous years and are looking to do so here tonight.
