Siena 79, Fordham 69

ALBANY - The Siena men's basketball team played its best half of the season in the second half on Monday night.

The Saints scored 52 points and erased a 13-point deficit to post a 79-69 victory over Fordham, in front of 6,131 fans in downtown Albany.

Siena (5-8) was led by junior Rob Poole, who scored a career-high 28 points, to lead four players in double figures.

The Rams (7-5) were led by Mandell Thomas, who scored 20 points.

After an abysmal shooting first half, the Saints finished 16-for-29 (55.2%) after intermission.

The Saints trailed 53-40, before going on a 22-0 run that gave them the lead for good.

Siena has now won two straight games and three of its last four. The Saints travel south to take on Monmouth, on Thursday.
