Sammarinese, San Marino - Kenny Hasbrouck scored all 14 of his points in the second half to lead Siena past Fulgar Libertas Forli 103-92 Friday night at the Multi Events Center in Sammarinese, San Marino. The Saints outscored Fulgar 27-17 in the final quarter to break free in a contentious, competitive second contest of their foreign tour.

Hasbrouck played just four minutes in the first quarter before being whistled for his second foul. He did not appear again until the start of the second half.

In his absence, reserve guard Clarence Jackson kept Siena close. Jackson scored 18 of his game-high 22 points before intermission with an array of outside jumpers and above-the-rim drives to the basket.

The Saints led 53-51 at halftime after Ronald Moore found Edwin Ubiles on a perfectly executed alley-oop to end the second quarter. Moore had 11 assists, five steals and no turnovers to go along with his 14 points. Ubiles finished with 15 points, five rebounds and three assists.

Siena again received solid contributions from its front line. Alex Franklin made 8-12 field goals on his way to 20 points. Ryan Rossiter scored 14 points and grabbed a team-high nine boards.

The Saints collected 14 steals and turned the ball over just eight times in an up-tempo game with 10 lead changes and 51 personal fouls.

 

 

Matteo Frassineti led Fulgar with 19 points. Damiano Brigo made 7-9 field goals, adding 16 points, and Mario Liburdi chipped in 14 for Fulgar. Both team shot identical percentages from the field (49%) and 3-point range (33%).

Siena struggled from the free throw line making 22-38 (58%) attempts.

The Saints used all 10 members of their traveling roster after just eight saw playing time in the team's game Sunday. Josh Duell started and was solid on defense despite failing to score. Erik Harris played just over a minute in the second quarter before tweaking his ankle injury and leaving with his second foul.
