RIVERDALE, New York – The Marist men’s basketball team suffered a 68-67 loss at Manhattan on Saturday night in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference at Draddy Gymnasium. Manhattan’s Zane Waterman hit what proved to be the game-winning three-pointer from the left corner with under 10 seconds to play.

“Our kids fought very hard,” Marist head coach Mike Maker said. “It was a heartbreaker.”

Red-shirt senior guard Khallid Hart led the Red Foxes with 20 points. Hart shot 8-for-9 from the free-throw line as he scored at least 20 points for the ninth time this season. Sophomore forward Ryan Funk scored 12 points as he drained four three-pointers in eight tries. Sophomore guard Brian Parker added 10 points and led the Red Foxes in assists (six) and rebounds (three). Sophomore guard Richie Mitchell tied his career in scoring as he scored nine points in just 13 minutes off the bench.

After missing the previous three games due to injury, Funk hit a three-pointer on the game’s first possession just 17 seconds in. However, the Red Foxes did not hit a field goal over the next 6:15. The Jaspers built their lead to as large as 11 in the first half, and held a 31-22 advantage after the first 20 minutes.

Marist opened the second half on a 16-4 run over the first 4:48 to take a three-point lead. The Red Foxes ran their lead to as large as six when sophomore swingman Kristinn Palsson drained a three with 9:15 left, which put Marist up 50-44. Manhattan answered with a 10-2 run over the next two minutes to take the lead. With 4:07 to play, a left-wing three by Funk gave Marist a 61-58 advantage with 4:07 remaining.

The Red Foxes maintained a one-point advantage and had possession with under 30 second to play. Funk missed a three, but Parker skied to get the offensive rebound and was fouled. He split the free throws, which gave Marist a 67-65 lead. Waterman’s three came on the next possession, and accounted for the game’s final points. The Red Foxes have multiple chances on the game’s final possession, but were unable to score.

“We gave ourselves a chance to win when it didn’t look very good in the first half,” Maker said. “We had the ball with a chance to win the game and it didn’t work out.”

Waterman led all scorers with 22 and also grabbed seven rebounds. Zavier Turner finished with 12 points and six assists for the Jaspers.

The Red Foxes shot 5-for-9 (.556) from three and 18-for-23 (.783) from the free-throw line in the second half.

Marist is 6-18 overall and 3-10 in the MAAC. Manhattan is 9-16 overall and 4-10 in conference play.

The Red Foxes return to action on Thursday, when they host Fairfield in a MAAC contest. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tickets are available on MaristTickets.com.
