Burns hits 3-pointer with 7.9 seconds left, Siena wins

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Jalen Pickett scored 19 of his 22 points in the second half and Elijah Burns made a go-ahead 3-pointer with 7.9 seconds left as Siena edged past Canisius 73-72 on Monday night.

Majesty Brandon sank a 3-pointer to give Canisius a two-point lead with 15 seconds left. Siena elected not to take a timeout and Burns was left open after a high screen at the top of the key. Canisius quickly went down the court, but Malik Johnson's shot in the lane didn't hit the rim.

Burns had 16 points for Siena (4-5, 1-0 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference), which earned its fourth consecutive home victory. Manny Camper had 11 points and 14 rebounds, and Donald Carey scored 10 points.

Brandon scored a season-high 30 points for the Golden Griffins (5-6, 0-1). Scott Hitchon added 15 points and five assists, and Armon Harried had nine rebounds. Johnson, who led the Golden Griffins in scoring coming into the contest with 14 points per game, scored only seven points (3 of 13).

Siena plays Holy Cross at home on Sunday. Canisius takes on Pittsburgh on the road next Monday.
