Box Score

Albany, N.Y. – Ryan Rossiter scored 19 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to lead Siena, and the Saints held Georgia Tech to 21 second-half points to rally past the Yellow Jackets’ 62-57, Wednesday night at the Times Union Center.

Tech (6-5) took a 36-30 halftime lead by holding Siena to 30.3-percent shooting in the first half, but the Saints (4-6) turned the tables with its 2-3 zone, holding the Yellow Jackets under 31 percent for the second half.

The Saints erased the Jackets’ halftime lead in 6-1/2 minutes, tying the game 40-40 on Rossiter’s jumper. After Brian Oliver’s jumper gave the lead back to Tech, Rakeem Brookins drove for a layup and converted a free throw for a three-point lead, and the Saints never trailed again.

Tech never fell behind by more than five points after that, tying the game twice over the last eight minutes. But the Saints answered each time. O.D. Asonike dunked after the Jackets tied the score at 49 with 7:35 left, and David Martens picked up a loose ball under the basket and laid it in at the 2:51 mark.

Glen Rice, Jr., scored 15 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the Yellow Jackets. Iman Shumpert also reached double digits for Tech with 10.

The Jackets return home to face Fordham at 12 noon Monday at Alexander Memorial Coliseum.
