Marist 61, Siena 55

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- Will McClurkin scored 12 of his 21 points in
the second half to lead Marist past Siena 61-55 Friday night.

Siena (4-22, 2-13 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) was up
34-30 at the half and still had the lead with 11:27 left after Jack
McClinton's jumper made it 47-42.

But Marist (11-13, 8-7) scored nine of the next 11 points.
Brandon Ellerbee's 3-pointer tied the game at 47, and McClurkin's
turnaround jumper gave the Red Foxes the lead with 6:34 remaining.

The Saints, who have lost 13 of their last 14, closed the gap to
58-55 but could get no closer. Marist snapped a six-game losing
streak.

McClinton led Siena with 16 points. Tommy Mitchell added 14.
