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).

In another move that bucks tradition, the Sharks completely revamped their on- ice leadership structure not by selecting new players to wear the precious singular letters on their uniforms, but by stripping the captaincy from Joe Thornton, removing the alternate tag from Patrick Marleau and leaving the other "A" vacant after Dan Boyle signed as a free agent with the Rangers.
