Recap: Siena vs. Hofstra

Albany, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Lavon Long, Rob Poole and Maurice White all scored 14 points as the Siena Saints captured a 67-59 win over the Hofstra Pride in non-conference action at the Times Union Center.

Also scoring in double figures for the Saints (4-8) was Brett Bisping with 10 points as the team won for the second time in the last three outings.

Hofstra (3-7) was led by Jamall Robinson who tallied a game-high 16 points, followed by Chris Jenkins and Dion Nesmith with 11 points apiece off the bench for a squad that lost for the fourth time in five tries. Zeke Upshaw, who entered the contest leading the team in scoring with 19.9 ppg, finished with a mere seven points as he shot a dismal 2-of-17 from the floor, 1-of-10 behind the 3-point line.

Hofstra led early on in the meeting, but it wasn't long before the Saints moved out to a 20-10 advantage midway through the first half. However, Siena shot only 35.5 percent from the field and 1-of-6 beyond the arc through the first 20 minutes, allowing the hosts to post just a 28-23 edge at the break.

In the second half Siena responded with 53.8 percent shooting from the floor and 10-of-12 at the free-throw line in order to grab the much-needed win.

While the Saints converted only 2-of-9 out on the perimeter on the night, Hofstra was a woeful 5-of-24 on the outside.

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.
