ST. THOMAS, U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS - Elizabeth Beynnon (Burlington, Vt.) scored a game-high 22 points and the Marist women's basketball team registered the program's first ever win over an ACC opponent with a 81-66 victory over Wake Forest Saturday night. It was the final of three games for the Red Foxes in the Virgin Islands.

Beynnon finished an astounding 8-9 from the floor, including 2-3 from three-point range, to lead five players in double digits. Kristina Danella (Manalapan, N.J) was 5-6 from beyond the three-point arc and finished with 18 points. Leanne Ockenden (Syracuse, N.Y.) was 5-10 from the field and 3-7 from long distance for 13 points to go along with four rebounds and four assists. Casey Dulin (Milford, Conn.) had 11 points, on 4-6 shooting, and six assists and three steals. Sydney Coffey (New Hope, Minn.) rounded out the double digit scorers with 10 points, including 5-5 from the free throw line. After shooting just 21% from three-point range over their first five games, the Red Foxes shot 43% (12-28) from beyond the arc on Saturday. Marist also shot 50% from the field, 16% over their season average.

Marist (3-3) looked strong on both ends, jumping out to an early 11-4 lead in the first four minutes, led by a layup and three-pointer from Beynnon.

The Red Foxes extended their lead to as much as 10 at 21-11 before Wake Forest (2-4) made a run, holding Marist without a basket for a 5:15 stretch. Despite the offensive struggles, the Red Foxes held a 23-17 lead after a Madeline Blais (Exeter, N.H.) layup with 4:28 left in the first half as the defense forced seven turnovers by the Demon Deacons.

For the first time this season, Marist led at halftime, taking a 34-28 lead into the locker rooms. At the break, Beynnon had nine points, Danella had eight and Dulin had seven. The Red Foxes were 13-28 (.464) from floor and 4-13 (.308) from three-point range. Four different players - Ockenden, Dulin, Coffey and Emma O'Connor (Lynbrook, N.Y.) - have two assists apiece as Marist only committed four turnovers in the opening period.

Marist came out of the break on fire, opening the second half on a 16-8 run over the first four minutes to open up a 14-point lead at 50-36. Ockenden hit two three-pointers in the streak, her first makes from long distance since Nov. 13 against Hartford, and added a layup. Beynnon also added seven points on two layups and a trey of her own.

From there, the Red Foxes protected a double-digit lead the rest of the game, never letting Wake Forest get closer than 13 points. A three-point play by Coffey with 4:55 left gave them their largest lead at 21 points, 77-56.

Marist returns home to McCann Arena for a midweek game Wednesday night against Hofstra. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
