— Kaili Lukan scored 13 of her career-high 16 points in the second half as Green Bay stopped the Siena College women’s basketball team, 63-52, in the TD Bank Classic at Patrick Gymasium Friday.

Senior guard Kanika Cummings led the Saints with 14 points.

Taking on the 15-time defending Horizon League Champions which won 29 games a year ago, Siena (1-2) held its own throughout.

After Green Bay (3-1) scored the first seven points, Siena responded by making four of its first five shots to ultimately take its first lead,

14-13, at the 12:02 mark. The Phoenix would later reclaim the lead and go up by 10, but the resilient Saints scored the final six points off the half to pull within four, 34-30 at the break.

Cummings scored 10 of her 14 points and added three steals in the opening stanza as Siena’s pressure gave the Phoenix fits. Green Bay, which came in averaging just 12 turnovers in their first three games and ranked 13th nationally in turnovers last year, coughed it up 12 times in the first half. Siena capitalized by scoring 16 points off those early miscues.

In the second half Siena got as close as a point, 36-35 on a Tehresa Coles three with 17:59 remaining, but could never reclaim the lead.

Coles joined Cummings in double figures for the Saints with 11 points while Kelsey Booth added eight points off the bench.
