The Fairfield Stags and the Siena Saints meet in college basketball action from Times Union Center on Friday.
Fairfield enters this one at 9-12 so far. The Stags are 2-1 in their last three games, with a loss to Rider sandwiched between wins over Canisius and Monmouth during that time.
In the win over the Hawks, Fairfield’s top scorers were Landon Taliaferro and Aidas Kavaliauskas, each with 14 points, two rebounds and one assist. Wassef Methnani added 13 points with 10 rebounds there as well.
Over on the Siena side, they’re 10-10 this year. After a three-game win streak over Marist, Quinnipiac and Iona, the Saints lost their last game to Saint Peter’s on Sunday.
In the loss to the Peacocks, Siena’s Elijah Burns topped the team on 18 points and two rebounds. Manny Camper added 17 points with nine rebounds, and Donald Carey had 15 points in that one.
Siena is 1-7 ATS in their last eight after an ATS loss and 4-12 ATS in their last 16 overall. The Saints are 2-6 ATS in their last eight after a straight-up loss and the over is 3-1-1 in their last five overall.
Meanwhile, the Stags are 1-4 ATS in their last five Friday games and 1-4 ATS in their last five road games. Fairfield is 1-4 ATS in their last five after an ATS win and the under is 35-17 in their last 52 overall.
Fairfield put up a pretty solid win over Monmouth their last time out, holding the Hawks to just 16 points during the first half. The Stags have been pretty decent defensively this year, but when a team gets away from them it’s difficult for Fairfield to keep up.
As for Siena, they’ve had some duds here and there this season but usually they score pretty well—they’ve hit at least 80 in each of their last three games. I’m going to stick with the Saints offense here on the cover.
