ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -Ahmed Nivins had 20 points and seven rebounds and St. Joseph's sank 10 3-pointers to beat Siena 74-68 Friday night.
Trailing 68-66 with 1:33 to go, the Hawks scored the final nine points of the game to beat the shorthanded Saints. Rob Ferguson's open 3-pointer gave the Hawks the lead for good with 1:24 left.
Pat Calathes had 14 points and 16 rebounds. Ferguson finished with 14 as well.
Siena, playing without second-leading scorer Alex Franklin, was led by sophomore Edwin Ubiles with 16 points. Tay Fisher had 14 points and Ronald Moore had 12.
In addition to Franklin's absence with a back injury, Siena's starting center Cory Magee played just six minutes with an illness and leading scorer Kenny Hasbrouck scored just four points and didn't play the final three minutes after injuring his back.
The loss snapped a four-game win streak for Siena (6-4), which had won nine straight at home and 13 of its last 14 non-conference home games. St. Joseph's (6-4) won its second straight game despite shooting just 39 percent from the floor in the second half.
