FINAL: UMass 64, Siena 63

Saints fall to 2-5

ALBANY -- Chaz Williams made a layup with four seconds left to give Massachusetts a 64-63 win over Siena at the Times Union Center tonight.

After three timeouts with 3.3 seconds left, Siena's Trenity Burdine threw a three-quarter court pass to O.D. Anosike, but he was guarded by two Minutemen, and Jesse Morgan swatted it away.

The Saints (2-5) had a 17-point lead in the first half, but the Minutemen (3-2) got within 34-24 at halftime and chipped away further in the second, finally taking a 44-43 lead.

Siena went ahead, 62-58, on a layup by Anosike, who had his seventh double-double, with 13 points and 13 rebounds. Morgan scored to bring UMass within 63-62 with 2:04 left.

Siena, already without Rakeem Brookins for at least a month (back injury), lost point guard Evan Hymes with a calf cramp with 50 seconds left. Rob Poole was assigned to guard Williams on the game-winning play and did well to defend the drive, but Williams made a tough shot off the glass to finish with 23 points.
