Former Siena player and basketball analyst Dwight Walton was on hand once again, this time serving as an official for tonight’s game. Here are his observations regarding the Saints performance.

“What I liked most about the Saints tonight was their execution in the half court and how they competed on both backboards.”

“Pastos wants his guys to play hard ALL THE TIME and I like that a lot about him. It was a team effort.”

Here is a game recap courtesy of Siena Athletics:

Rob Poole scored 19 points to pace Siena’s 69-48 win over Queens University (Ontario) Monday night in Montreal. Lavon Long added 13 points and five rebounds and was the catalyst in a decisive 15-3 run early in the game.

Poole and Rich Audu each had four steals as Siena’s pressure defense and inside muscle was the difference in the game. Imoh Silas joined Audu with a team-high seven rebounds. Marquis Wright scored eight points and dished out five assists without a turnover.

It was the first game of the Montreal tour in which NCAA rules were used, and Siena was much more comfortable with the 35-second shot clock.

Ryan Oliver started in place of Evan Hymes who broke his right hand in Sunday’s loss at McGill. Hymes was the only member of the traveling party not to see action in Monday’s game. He’s expected to be sidelined for up to six weeks. Oliver finished with five points, six rebounds and two assists and was the only Saints to convert a 3-pointer (1-2). Siena continued to struggle from distance, shooting just 1-11 for the game, but that was the only blemish in an otherwise thorough effort.

The Saints play their fourth of five games in Montreal Tuesday night against Brookwood Club
