Stags’ comeback ends Siena woimen's winning streak

Brittany Obi-Tabot scored 15 of her 17 points in the second half to help the Fairfield women’s baske

Brittany Obi-Tabot scored 15 of her 17 points in the second half to help the Fairfield women’s basketball team rally to defeat Siena, 50-43, in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game Friday night at Alumni Hall.

The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the Saints, while the Stags have won five straight and seven of their last eight.

Lily Grenci led Siena (7-11, 3-4 MAAC) with 11 points and 10 rebounds, while Colonie High School graduate Tehresa Coles added nine points and five steals for the Saints, who shot just 30 percent (14-for-46) from the field.

Siena never trailed in the first half and led, 21-20, at the break, but Fairfield (12-6, 6-1) opened the second half on an 11-4 run and never trailed again.

Fairfield, the MAAC’s top scoring-defense team, shut down the Saints’ inside game in the second half. The Stags’ frontcourt outscored the Saints, 27-16, in the second half, with the Saints making just five of 19 shots.

Siena trailed by only two, 41-39, when Grenci made a jumper with 2:41 to play, but that was as close as the Saints would get. The Stags scored seven of their final nine points from the free-throw line.

Siena will be back in action Monday, playing at Marist at 7 p.m.
