Recap: Fairfield vs. Siena

Fairfield, CT (Sports Network) - Derek Needham erupted for a game-high 31 points as he guided the Fairfield Stags to a convincing 74-52 win over the Siena Saints in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action at Webster Bank Arena.

Needham made good on 8-of-11 shots behind the 3-point line for the Stags (16-11, 8-7 MAAC) as they won for the sixth time in the last seven outings. Colin Nickerson filled his stat line with 10 points, nine rebounds, five assists and a couple of steals for the hosts as well.

The Saints (6-20, 4-11), losers of four in a row, were paced by Evan Hymes with 14 points, Trenity Burdine 11 and Imoh Silas with 10 points. Most surprising was the lackluster performance by O.D. Anosike who shot just 1-of-6 from the floor as he finished with five points and six rebounds. Heading into the night he was averaging 12.8 points and 11.7 rebounds per contest.

Thanks to Needham the Stags opened the meeting on a 22-10 run and never looked back, posting a 36-23 advantage at the break as the team connected on 8-of-15 beyond the arc through the first 20 minutes.

In the second half Fairfield dipped to just 3-of-10 on the perimeter, but by then the outcome was never in doubt.

Siena finished the night with almost as many turnovers (16) as field goals (18).

Game Notes

NCAA Football Preview -Utah Utes

Last year started off with plenty of promise, as the Utes were 4-2 through the first six games, with a stunning upset of Stanford (27-20) the highlight of the run. That win would end up being the biggest of the year for Utah, which went on to drop five straight games following the victory. Utah managed to end the year on a high note, outlasting Colorado, 24-17. However, it was not enough to warrant a bowl appearance.
