Senior Michael Alvarado had 21 points, seven assists and five steals to lead Manhattan past Siena, 90-68, Thursday night in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game.

The Saints were done in by 23 turnovers and 30 fouls.

“I don’t think we have the emotional intensity right now to match the top-five teams in the conference,” Siena coach Jimmy Patsos said after the loss.

Manhattan improved to 6-1 in conference play, despite playing without leading scorer George Beamon for the second straight game.

Siena trailed by nine points at halftime, and closed within 70-60 with 6:17 to play before Manhattan closed the game on a 20-8 run.

Rob Poole had his third career double-double (13 points, 11 rebounds), and Ryan Oliver chipped in a career-high 11 points in a spot start for the Saints. Starting point guard Marquis Wright finished with 11 points, five rebounds and five assists, and Brett Bisping rounded out four Saints in double figures with 10 points.

Manhattan outscored Siena, 39-11, off turnovers and 32-18 at the free throw line. The Jaspers aggressively attacked the rim all night, and they were rewarded with 43 attempts at the foul line.

Shane Richards hit four three-pointers and added 15 points for Manhattan. Rhamel Brown had 13, and Donovan Kates aded 10.
