The Saints defeated the Bulldogs 61-57 in Game 1 on Monday night, rallying from 12 points down in the second half. Siena held Fresno State without a field goal over the last 6:59 of the game.
The Saints shot just 33.3 percent in the win, but they made up for it with their stifling defense and dominance on the boards. Siena used a full-court press to help force 16 turnovers, which was key in erasing the second-half deficit. The Saints also grabbed 17 offensive rebounds and won the overall rebounding battle by 10.
Cezar Guerrero had 15 points as Fresno State shot 47.8 percent from the field. But if there's going to be a Game 3, the Bulldogs must to a better job taking care of the ball and keeping the Saints off the offensive boards.
