Manhattan never trails, closes out Siena down the stretch 80-74


ALBANY, New York — Emmy Andujar scored 17 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to lead Manhattan past Siena 80-74 on Saturday.

With the 13 rebounds, Andujar becomes the first player in Manhattan history to accumulate more than 1,200 points, 700 rebounds, 300 assists, and 150 steals in his career.

Ashton Pankey and RaShawn Stores added 15 points apiece for the Jaspers (14-12, 11-6 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference), who won on the road against Siena for the first time since Jan. 30, 2006.

Manhattan never trailed in the game, opening on a 10-3 run, but still held just a two point lead at the half, 35-33. The Jaspers took a 10-point lead early in the second half but the Saints mounted one final charge, cutting their deficit to 75-72 with 48 seconds left. However a Stores 3-pointer 30 seconds later sealed it for Manhattan.

Javion Ogunyemi scored 18 for the Saints (10-17, 7-11).
