Siena women hold off Minutewomen, 57-51

The Siena College women’s basketball team saw a 16-point lead with 10 minutes remaining dwindle down

The Siena College women’s basketball team saw a 16-point lead with 10 minutes remaining dwindle down to just two in the closing seconds, but held on for a 57-51 win over Massachusetts Friday night at the Mullins Center.

Ida Krogh led Siena with a career-high 17 points including the game-clinching free throws in the closing seconds.

Krogh added a career-best four threes, and Colonie High School graduate Tehresa Coles contributed 12 points, four steals and a key three-pointer in the final minutes, leading Siena (4-6) to the program’s first regular-season win in the state of Massachusetts in 16 years.

The Saints snapped an eight-game regular-season losing streak in the Bay State, dating back to a 65-64 win at Harvard in November 1996.

Jasmine Watson led UMass (2-11) with 15 points and four blocks.
