College basketball news and notes, April 5

Tournament MVP Brett Bisping had 20 points and nine rebounds, and Siena cruised past Fresno State 81-68 in the decisive Game 3 of the College Basketball Invitational championship series Saturday at Loudonville, N.Y.
Rob Poole added 23 points. Siena (20-18) capped its longest season, which began Nov. 8, with its first national postseason title since jumping to Division I in 1976. Tyler Johnson had 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Bulldogs (21-18), who were 4 of 22 from the field in the first half and trailed 39-22 at the break.WOMEN
Connecticuts Breanna Stewart earned the Associated Press Player of the Year award, becoming just the third sophomore to achieve the honor. Notre Dames Muffet McGraw was selected coach of the year for the second straight season.
The pair accepted their awards in front of a standing room only crowd in Nashville that included the entire UConn and Notre Dame teams as well as Stewarts family.
Its obviously a huge deal and I think the fact that being able to be named player of the year is awesome and I think it just shows how hard Ive worked this season and the offseason, Stewart said. I think this is nice, but its a team game and we want to win a national championship.
Stewart, a unanimous All-American, got 20 votes from the 36-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25. Stanfords Chiney Ogwumike received eight votes, Baylors Odyssey Sims had six and Kayla McBride of Notre Dame got two votes.
Stewart joined former UConn star Maya Moore and Oklahomas Courtney Paris of Piedmont High as the only sophomores to win the award.
Womens NIT: Tyler Scaife went coast-to-coast and scores with 2 seconds left to give Rutgers the WNIT title with a 56-54 win at Texas-El Paso.
