After a couple of ugly losses recently, the Siena Saints have rebounded to win two straight games recently, with their last being a victory over the Marist Red Foxes. In all, the Saints were able to pull away in the second half thanks to shooting 50% from the field as a team along wtih getting 25 points from Devin Degan.
The Canisius Golden Griffins have dropped two of their last three games entering this matchup. And while their offense has certainly heated up in their last two outings, their defense has been awful in allowing 86 points in their matchup versus the Niagara Purple Eagles while falling by a slim, two-point margin.
Evan Fisher (16 ppg, 6 rebs) is the leading scorer on the season for the Saints as he shoots 49% from the floor on a nightly basis. In their outing versus the Red Foxes, he went 7-12 from the floor while ending with 16 points in the much-needed win.
On the other hand, Degnan (9 ppg, 6 rebs) exploded for 25 points in the game while Jalen Pickett (15 ppg, 4 rebs, 6 ass) came two rebounds shy of a triple double as the 6’4″ guard is shooting 45% from the floor on the year. Pickett also thrives on keeping his teammates involved as he dished out ten dimes versus Marist.
Nonetheless, Siena took the loss versus the Golden Griffins in early January as the Saints reliquished a 10-point halftime lead to be outscored by a 40-26 margin en route to the defeat. Both Pickett along with Fisher recorded double-doubles in the contest as Fisher ended with 21 points along with 17 rebounds in addition to Pickett having 14 points and 11 assists.
Canisius Golden Griffins
Canisius received 28 points from Takai Molson in their matchup with the Purple Eagles of Niagara. Malik Johnson along with Jonathan Sanks chipped in 15 and 13 points as well in the slim defeat for the Golden Griffins as the team connected on five more field goals than the visitors, however, Niagara went to the line 27 times while connecting on 21 of those attempts in the end to seal the victory.
And while Canisius shot 50% from the floor, they also allowed the Purple Eagles to do the same as they aloowed 80+ points in their second straight game. With fourth place within the MAAC possibly being decided in this contest, the Golden Griffins will certainly be bringing the focus for this matchup.
Leading scorer in Molson (17 ppg) had 25 points in their last meeting versus the Saints while Sanks along with Johnson struggled in contributing just 5 points in the victory. Isaiah Reese stepped up the the matchup, however, scoring 20 points, collecting 5 boards, while also recording 5 steals.

Nonetheless, I strongly believe that the Saints are indeed the better team at this point in the season Combine this with the fact that they have won two-straight entering this matchup, look for the visitors to battle for 40 minutes while pulling out a 81-69 win over a struggling Golden Griffins squad.
