Saints Deep-Six Fairfield, Advance to Semis
For the second straight year Siena Women's Basketball will advance to the MAAC Semifinals as the No. 6 seed. Kanika Cummings hit a pair of clutch shots late and Siena's defense smothered Fairfield's final attempts as the Saints held on and beat the third-seeded Stags 52-48 in quarterfinal action at the MassMutual Center.

Arguably the most competitive women's basketball rivalry in the MAAC, the programs have met in the conference tournament in eight of the past nine seasons and had a number of classic games.
Meeting for the 63rd time, Fairfield (9-6, 4-2) leads the all-time series 34-28. The Stags had won five straight before the Saints (6-9, 1-5) defeated No. 3 seed Fairfield in last season's MAAC Tournament to advance to the semifinals for a second straight year as a No. 6 seed.
Fairfield has won the past four meetings at its on campus facility, Alumni Hall, but the Saints have captured four straight including in the MAAC Tournament here in Bridgeport.
