FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) Elijah Burns scored 15 points and Jalen Pickett added 14 with five assists as Siena grabbed a late lead and held on, defeating Fairfield 62-59 on Sunday.

Another triple from King gave the Saints a seven-point lead with less than two minutes remaining.

Manny Camper scored 13 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for his 12th double-double of the season and also made all eight free throws as Siena converted 20 of 23 from the line.

The win was a fifth in a row for Siena, which began the streak defeating Fairfield 65-49 on Feb. 7.

Vincent Eze led the Stags (11-16, 7-9) with 14 points and eight rebounds. Taj Benning added 11 points.
