    ALBANY, N.Y. -- Clarence Jackson hit a pair of 3-pointers and Ronald Moore added another to key a game-changing 16-0 run in the second half, and Siena beat Rider 72-62 on Sunday night in the semifinals of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.

    Top-seeded Siena (26-6), whose only conference loss was 87-74 at Niagara three weeks ago, will play the winner of the other semifinal played later Sunday between the Niagara and Fairfield. It will be the fourth straight title trip for the Saints, who are the two-time defending champs.

    Alex Franklin led Siena with 18 points, Jackson had 17, and Ryan Rossiter 10 points and 18 rebounds.

    Moore finished with 15 points and 10 assists to run his career assist total to 812, one shy of Jared Jordan's MAAC record, which ranks 25th all-time nationally. Moore leads the country with 7.7 assists per game.

    Ryan Thompson led Rider (17-16) with 21 points.
