Siena cut an early 21-point deficit to as few as three points late, but Canisius ultimately held off the Saints, 75-66, in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference women’s basketball game at the Koessler Athletic Center Saturday.

The final point tally represented the exact final score by which Canisius beat the Saints three weeks ago in Loudonville.

Siena (7-18, 2-14) shot 50 percent from the field in the second half and 5-for-8 from three-point range to cut into what had been as big as a 21-point deficit (39-18) with 1:27 to go in the first half. Junior captain Tehresa Coles drilled a three, capping a 9-0 run to pull Siena to within 59-56 with 5:53 remaining.

But Canisius (10-15, 6-10), which scored the first seven points of the game in leading throughout, responded with a 10-3 run to go back up by double figures. The Golden Griffins shot 54.8 percent for the game.

Coles, who scored a career-high 25 points in the first meeting between the teams, had another strong performance with 19 points. Kanika Cummings added 15 points and three steals.

Tiahana Mills scored a career-high 16 points and added seven assists to lead the Golden Griffins, while Jamie Ruttle added 12 points for Canisius.
