Recap: Siena vs. St Bonaventure

Albany, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Marquis finished with just seven points, but two came on the game-winning bucket in the waning seconds to lead the Siena Saints to a thrilling 72-70 victory over the St. Bonaventure Bonnies at the Times Union Center.

Lavon Long led the way with 15 points and added five rebounds and three blocks for the Saints (1-3) in their first win of the season. Brett Bisping joined in with 13 points and seven rebounds, and Evan Hymes added 10 points and four assists.

Youssou Ndoye provided a double-double with 16 points and 12 rebounds for the Bonnies (3-1) in their first loss. Dion Wright scored 14 points on 6-of-10 from the field, and Matthew Wright pitched in 13 points and seven assists. Andell Cumberbatch supplied another 10 points.

The teams matched each other from the field in the first half, both shooting nearly 47 percent. The difference came at the free-throw line, where the Saints went 13-of-15 and the Bonnies struggled at only 6-of-14. Siena muscled its way to a 48-38 lead at the half.

The Saints went cold offensively in the final 20 minutes of play, shooting just 34.6 percent from the floor and scoring only half as many points as in the opening stanza. Meanwhile, the Bonnies heated up from the charity stripe, where they sank 13-of-17. Even still, they were only able to take the lead once, by one point, with 3:31 left on the clock. Matthew Wright made two free throws for the Bonnies with 1:16 left, tying the score at 70, but with nine seconds to go, Ndoye turned the ball over, which led to Wright's game-winning layup just before the final horn blew.

Siena held on to win despite a lackluster showing from beyond the arc (6- of-19). The Bonnies were off the mark as well, shooting 3-of-10 from long distance.
