Recap: Siena vs. Niagara

Albany, NY (Sports Network) - Juan'ya Green finished one rebound shy of a triple-double as the Niagara Purple Eagles defeated the Siena Saints, 78-69, in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference bout at the Times Union Center.

Green finished with 19 points, 11 assists, and nine boards for Niagara (12-8, 8-1 MAAC), which extended its season-long winning streak to five games. Antoine Mason netted 17 points for the visitors, while Ameen Tanksley tallied 14 points and seven rebounds.

For Siena (4-16, 2-7), Evan Hymes matched a career-high with 30 points on 7- of-11 from the field and 12-of-13 from the foul line. Rob Poole scored 14 points, Trenity Burdine had 11 points, O.D.
