The Eagles shot 33 of 64 from the field (51.6 percent), including 6 of 20 from distance, and knocked down 14 of 20 attempts from the free-throw line. They checked Siena on 19-of-63 shooting from the field (30.2 percent), including 3 of 15 from beyond the three-point arc. Florida Gulf Coast dominated on the boards, outrebounding the Saints 48-33.
