Siena forced 27 turnovers and had 20 steals en route to a 62-44 victory over Binghamton at the Events Center on Saturday.

Lily Grenci led three Saints (2-3) in double figures with 13 points, while Colonie High graduate Tehresa Coles added a career-high tying 12 points and had six steals for the second straight game as Siena beat Binghamton (0-5) for the first time in program history.

Siena’s defense pressured the Bearcats full court for 40 minutes.

The Saints totaled 21 points off turnovers.

Binghamton overcame its miscues early to go on an 11-0 run and take a 15-8 lead capped by a Jasmine Golden three at the 10:16 mark of the first half.

Making her first career start at the point, the freshman led Binghamton with the first 13 points of her career.

But Siena’s pressure defense would catch up with Binghamton.

The Saints responded with a 16-3 run to take the lead back for good and had a 28-24 advantage at the half.

Siena came out flying to start the second half, scoring the first nine points, and led by double digits the rest of the way.

Kate Zarotney added 10 points off the bench as Siena’s second unit held a 19-5 edge over that of the Bearcats.

Jasbriell Swain contributed 12 points, eight rebounds and four assists for Binghamton, which has lost 10 of 11 dating back to last season.
