Siena vs. Pittsburgh: Pitt bounces Saints

Poor shooting and wasted possessions doomed the Siena College women’s basketball team Tuesday at Fit

Poor shooting and wasted possessions doomed the Siena College women’s basketball team Tuesday at Fitzgerald Field House.

While the Saints shot just 30.5 percent from the floor, Pittsburgh connected on 51.9 percent and forced Siena into 27 turnovers in a 75-50 rout.

Asia Logan led four Panthers in double figures with 16 points on 6-for-7 shooting, while Brianna Kiesel added 14 points, six steals and five assists. Ashlee Anderson contributed 13 points on a perfect 6-for-6 shooting to go along with seven rebounds and seven assists. Marquel Davis scored 12 points with two steals and five rebounds.

Senior captain Lily Grenci, a native of nearby Mars, Pa., posted her second straight double-double to start the season with 14 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Saints.

Siena (1-1) hung tough early, staying within six points at 24-18 with 6:47 remaining in the first half. But Pitt (2-1) opened things up with a 12-1 run and never led by fewer than 13 points the rest of the way.

Pitt led by as many as 30, 66-36, on a Kiesel jumper with 9:35 to go.

Kanika Cummings led Siena’s second unit contributing seven of the bench’s 24 points. Siena’s bench outscored the Panthers, 24-19, but Pittsburgh thrived inside with a 34-22 scoring advantage in the paint.

The Saints return to action Saturday when they travel to Rhode Island for a 5 p.m. tip-off.
