The deep jump shot is both higher risk and higher reward.

Unable to establish much inside in Albany, Princeton had success the first 30 minutes taking a constant barrage of three point jumpers versus the trapping Siena zone.

Then the shots stopped falling.

Six consecutive misses during a five minute stretch midway through the second half coupled with 12 straight points for the Saints reversed what was 43-37 Tiger lead into a six point advantage for the home team.

Having kept double/double machine OD Anosike in check for the majority of the evening, Anosike scored eight of his 12 in the final three minutes as Siena held off a late Princeton charge for the 63-59 win. Kyle Downey’s free throw with two seconds to go secured the result.
