Recap: Niagara vs. Siena

Springfield, MA (Sports Network) - Antoine Mason made all 10 of his attempts at the free-throw line en route to 21 points as the top-seeded Niagara Purple Eagles defeated the ninth-seeded Siena Saints, 74-62, in the quarterfinals of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship at the MassMutual Center.

Juan'ya Green tallied 15 points, six assists and five rebounds for Niagara (19-12), which will take on the winner of the Iona/Canisius matchup in the semifinals on Sunday.

Evan Hymes and Rob Poole scored 14 points each for Siena (8-24), which also received one final double-double from O.D. Anosike, who tallied 13 points and 10 rebounds. Anosike, who led the nation in rebounding a season ago, finished his career with 46 double-doubles.
