LOUDONVILLE – The Siena women’s basketball team got solid games from Amari Anthony and Rachel Brown, but it wasn’t enough to produce the first win of the season for the Saints.

North Dakota’s Casey Borowicz led with 18 points, while Claire Orth scored 17 and Maggie Manson scored 16.
North Dakota won despite making 23 turnovers, which the visitors made 7 of 14 shots from the 3-point zone and 12 of 14 from the foul line. North Dakota also beat Sienna 38-29.
Sienna hosts Colgate on Thursdays. The contest would serve as the third consecutive Saints at home after playing their first four games on the road.
After that game, Siena will not play again until 12 December when it plays Ulbani, who are 1–3 to start their season.
