Siena women's basketball team suffers sixth straight loss

Rachel Fitz, the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference preseason Player of the Year, scored 16 points Sunday as Marist won the league’s regular-season title with a 78-49 victory over Siena at the McCann Center.

The Saints, who suffered their sixth straight loss to fall to 8-9 in the league and 9-17 overall, earned the sixth seed for the league tournament, and will face the No. 3 seed, either Canisius or Faifield, on March 6.

Fitz scored 12 of Marist’s first 15 points as the Red Foxes (15-2, 25-3) opened up a 35-21 lead at the half. Marist has now beaten Siena in 10 straight games.

Cathy Cockrum was the only Siena player in double figures, finishing with 10. Heather Stec was hampered by foul trouble, and played just 16 minutes before fouling out.
