Willingham tied a program record with 10 steals, rallying Siena from a 10-point second half deficit to beat 2013 WNIT participant Sacred Heart 58-53 Tuesday night. Willingham posted a double-double and finished just three rebounds shy of a triple-double, in adding career-highs of 17 points and seven rebounds while shooting 6-of-11 (54.5%) from the field in just 22 minutes off the bench. Her 10 steals, which tied a Siena record shared by Shawn Shafer (Jan. 30, 1988) and Mary Fuchs (Jan. 19, 1989), were also tied for the second most in a game in MAAC history.
