ALBANY, New York - The Marist women’s basketball team defeated the Saint Peter’s Peacocks, 71-60, in the first round of action at the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championships. With the win the Red Foxes move on to face the #3 seeded Fairfield Stags Saturday afternoon at 12 p.m.

Freshman Rebekah Hand, a MAAC Rookie of the Year candidate, led the Red Foxes with a career-high 32 points on 13-for-20 shooting from the field. Her 32 points is the most for a Marist player in the MAAC Tournament since Erica Allenspach scored 34 points against Siena in 2011. She added nine rebounds. Maura Fitzpatrick netted 12 points for Marist.

The Red Foxes opened up a 19-4 lead after the first quarter with six points each from Fitzpatrick and Rebekah Hand. Marist maintained the lead throughout the half after a three just before the buzzer from Kendall Baab pushed the lead back to 15.

The Red Foxes held the peacocks to 8-for-34 shooting in the first half and 23-for-61 shooting overall. Marist outscored Saint Peter’s in the paint 34-20 and at the free throw stripe, knocking in 14-of-its-19 attempts.

Saint Peter's attempted to climb back into the game outscoring the Red Foxes by two in both of the final quarters but the strong start and timely hoops from Rebekah Hand staved the Peacocks’ comeback.
