ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) - Torrell Martin scored 18 points and James Shuler
added 13 to lead Winthrop to a 67-58 victory over Siena on Sunday.
The Eagles (5-2) started slow but went on a 16-0 run in the final minutes of
the opening period. Siena (0-6) was held scoreless for more than four minutes,
but scored five unanswered points to trail by seven at halftime.
Antoine Jordan scored 14 points for Siena and Michael Haddix added 13 and
Winthrop increased its lead to 13 midway through the second half. Siena cut
the lead to six twice, the last coming with 1:06 left. But Chris Gaynor saved a
loose ball from going out of bounds and his pass gave Martin a layup with 37
seconds to seal the victory.
Both teams struggled from the field. The Eagles were shot just 38.8 percent
compared with 36.7 percent by Siena.
Billy Houston had six blocked shots for Winthrop.
