UAlbany 74, Siena 62

Mike McMahon/The Record
ALBANY - The University at Albany is still the top dog in the Capital District.

Sam Rowley and Peter Hooley each scored 17 points, as the Great Danes overcame a 16-point first-half deficit to beat Siena, 74-62.

“It means a lot, not just for the players, but for our school," said Hooley.

UAlbany played much better in the second half, getting 12 points from D.J. Evans and nine more from Gary Johnson.

The Saints played a terrific first half, but things came unglued in the second half. Siena was outscored 43-25 in the second half and shot just 27 percent (10-36) from the floor.

The Saints were led by freshman Maurice White, who scored 17 points, while junior Rob Poole added 15.

“It’s very encouraging," Poole said. If we come out in the second half like we did in the first half, we win that game.”
