BALTIMORE (AP) — Ryan Rossiter scored 18 points to lead all five Siena starters in double figures as the Saints defeated Loyola (Md.) 76-59 on Friday night.

Rossiter, with nine rebounds, also became only the second player in Siena history to amass 1,000 career boards.

The Saints (8-12, 5-5 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) ended a two-game skid while snapping the Greyhounds’ four-game winning streak.

Siena used a 15-2 run to turn a one-point deficit into a 29-17 lead with 8:01 to go in the first half and led by double figures the rest of the way.

Loyola (10-10, 6-4), which came in having won six of its last seven games, got to 65-55 on a 3-pointer from J’hared Hall with 6:26 left. The Saints answered with a 6-0 run.

OD Anosike scored a career-high 16 points for Siena, Owen Wignot had 14, Kyle Downey 13 and Rakeem Brookins 11.

Justin Drummond scored 12 to lead Loyola.
