WEST HARTFORD, Conn. - The Marist women's basketball team dropped a tough 64-53 decision Tuesday night at the hands of the University of Hartford in a non-conference game. It was Marist's first road game of the season.

Elizabeth Beynnon (Burlington, Vt.) led the team with 13 points and six rebounds. Casey Dulin (Milford, Conn.) and Kristina Danella (Manalapan, N.J.) were also in double digits with 12 and 11 points, respectively. Dulin also had four steals and Danella had four rebounds.

For the second straight game, Marist (1-1) looked out of sync in the first half. Part of that can be attributed to the fact that Dulin and O'Connor each had to play limited minutes due to foul trouble. The Red Foxes had 14 turnovers in the opening 20 minutes and shot only 4-13 from three-point range.

However, despite the early struggles, neither team was able to get a lead of more than four points in the first half, as the Marist defense made five steals and forced nine Hartford (2-0) errors. The Red Foxes also outrebounded the Hawks 21-15 in the opening half.

Sydney Coffey (New Hope, Minn.) hit her first career basket with a three-pointer with eight seconds remaining in the half, but the Hawks came right down the court and hit a running layup at the buzzer to tie the score at 28 at midway point.

The game continued to be back-and-forth to start the second half. The Red Foxes came out with more intensity on both ends of the court and took a 35-31 lead on layups by Beynnon and Leanne Ockenden (Syracuse, N.Y.), surrounded around a three-pointer by Danella.

The Hawks stormed right back however and eventually took a 43-41 lead. After a short Beynnon jumper knotted things back up, Hartford scored five straight points to open a48-43 lead and force a Marist timeout.

The Red Foxes closed to within two points at 50-48 on a Danella layup, but Hartford responded with a 12-2 run to put a final clamp on the game at 62-50 with 2:03 remaining.

A final three-pointer by Dulin could not jumpstart a Marist comeback as the Red Foxes fell for the first time this season, ending a four-game winning streak against the Hawks.

Marist returns home to McCann Arena to host Princeton in a 7 p.m. game. The Tigers won the Ivy League last year, going 14-0 in conference play, and were a #9 seed in the tournament last year, falling 67-64 against eighth-seeded Kansas State. Marist fell at Princeton in the third game of the season last year, 68-51.
