    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP)Edwin Ubiles had 19 points and led five scorers in double figures as Siena topped Rider 91-81 Friday in a rematch of last season's Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championship game.

    Kenny Hasbrouck had 18 points, and Alex Franklin added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Saints (11-5, 5-0 MAAC). After leading 41-40 at halftime, Siena trailed 44-43 in the opening minute of the second half before going on a five-minute, 21-7 sprint to take the lead for good.

    The Broncs (8-6, 3-1 MAAC) countered with an 11-2 run but never narrowed the gap to less than four points for the rest of the game. Mike Ringgold had 16 points and 10 rebounds for Rider, and Harris Mansell added 19 points.

    Franklin and Ubiles capped the victory with consecutive breakaway dunks in the final minute, with Ubiles completing a 360-degree slam.

    The teams' last matchup propelled Siena into the NCAA tournament.
