LOUDONVILLE — The Siena women’s basketball team received solid games from Amari Anthony and Rayshel Brown, but that wasn’t enough for the Saints to produce their first win of the season.

North Dakota won 71-63 at UHY Center in a non-conference game Tuesday against Siena, which dropped to 0-6 on the season. North Dakota led by as many as 16 points in the fourth quarter and never trailed as it improved to 3-4 on the season.

Anthony had 22 points, seven rebounds and four steals for Siena, while Brown produced 19 points, six rebounds and five steals. Anthony made 9 of 14 shots and Brown made 7 of 11, but the rest of the Saints were 9 of 37 from the field.

North Dakota’s Kacie Borowicz led with 18 points, while Claire Orth had 17 and Maggie Manson scored 16. 

North Dakota registered the win despite committing 23 turnovers, miscues that the visitors made up for by making 7 of 14 shots from 3-point territory and 12 of 14 from the foul line. North Dakota also out-rebounded Siena 38-29.

Siena hosts Colgate Thursday. That contest will serve as the Saints’ third in a row at home after playing its first four games on the road. 

Following that game, Siena won’t play again until Dec. 12 when it plays UAlbany, which is 1-3 to start its season.

Siena’s 63 points represented a season-high total. Previously, Siena hadn’t scored more than 55 points in a game this season.
