POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) - Clarence Jackson scored 19 points after missing six games with an ankle injury to lead Siena to a 66-59 win over Marist on Friday night.
Jackson came off the bench to hit five 3-pointers, helping the Saints (6-10, 3-3 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) win their eighth straight game over their arch-rivals and snap their five-game road losing streak.
Ryan Rossiter completed his 12th double-double of the season with 15 points and 13 boards and OD Anosike had 13 points and nine rebounds for Siena.
The Saints never trailed, taking a 32-28 lead into halftime.
The Red Foxes (4-14, 3-3) got within a point on three occasions, the last time at 55-54 with 2:51 left on a Sam Prescott 3-pointer.
Jackson answered with a 3 and Rossiter scored on a three-point play to end the threat.
Prescott scored 15 to lead Marist, which was 5 of 23 from 3-point range.
