— Loyola’s pressure defense forced Siena’s three-guard set of Rakeem Brookins, Evan Hymes and Rob Poole to commit a dozen turnovers Friday night as the Greyhounds rolled over the Saints, 63-51, in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game at Reitz Arena.

The loss dropped the Saints to 4-9 in the conference and 6-17 overall.

The Saints were also hindered by three of 13 shooting from three-point range.

Senior O.D. Anosike had a double-double for the Saints, finishing with 16 points and 16 rebounds, but Poole was the only other player in double figures, scoring 12 points. Brookins and Hymes were a combined 2-for-11 from the field, with Hymes only playing four minutes after battling a sore throat.

Erik Etherly had a game-high 25 points for the Greyhounds, who are 9-4 in the conference. The Greyhounds took care of the ball all night, finishing with just eight turnovers, while handing out 14 assists.
