  •  

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Billy Baron scored a career-high 40 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and fueled the go-ahead run in triple overtime to lead Canisius to a 92-88 win over Siena on Sunday.

Coming from behind to force all three OT periods, Canisius (17-9, 11-4 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) took control in the final overtime session with back-to-back jumpers from Baron, who also sank a layup and pumped in the final three points from the penalty stripe to cement the win. Kevin Bleeker added a 3-pointer in the game-winning 12-8 run.

Chris Perez, who hit the game-tying free throw to force the second OT, scored 25 points, and Jordan Heath, whose baskets forced the first and third OT periods, finished with 11 points for the Golden Griffins, who shot 44 percent in their second straight win.

Siena (11-15, 7-8) was led by Rob Poole's 33 points, while Brett Bisping had 16.
