SIENA 66, ST PETERS 53
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- O.D. Anosike scored 20 points and Rakeem
Brookins 18 to lead Siena to a 66-53 victory over Saint Peter's
in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game Sunday.
Rich Audu hit a pair of key 3-pointers in the second half for
the Saints (4-13, 2-4), who had lost 11 in a row before
defeating Canisius 57-54 Friday night.
Saint Peter's (6-10, 1-5) fell behind by 13 points in the first
half but trailed just 49-47 with 5:07 remaining.
Siena ran off the next eight points, including consecutive treys
by Audu, who played the rest of the way after Ryan Oliver
injured his knee in the game's second minute.
The Saints had a huge edge in free throws, making 27 of 36,
while Saint Peter's made 5 of 12. Anosike, who was averaging
45.8 percent from the line, made 12 of 17.
Desi Washington led the Peacocks with 16 points.
