Red Foxes & Golden Griffins, February 4, 2012 ...
In their last meeting, the Red Foxes snapped their 8 game losing streak with an 80-69 victory over Canisius.

Jay Bowie spearheaded the offensive attack with a career-best 23 points scored on 10 of 12 shooting from the field.

Chavaughn Lewis, in his second career start, finished with 15 points on 5-11 shooting. He was joined by Devin Price as Red Foxes in double figures, as he finished with 12 points.

As a whole, Marist had seven players score five or more points and grab three or more rebounds.

Canisius was ahead just once for 32 seconds from 18:45 to 18:13 in the first half.

Last Time Out ... Dec. 7 vs. Manhattan ...
Devin Price scored his 1,000th career point in the first half, and iced the game with two clutch free throws in the closing seconds as Marist defeated Manhattan 62-58 Friday night in the MAAC opener for both teams at McCann Arena.

In an up and down game with two 10-plus point swings, the Red Foxes pulled out the victory with staunch defending, and composure on offense and at the foul line down the stretch in the final minutes of play.

The Red Foxes opened their lead up to a game-high 15 point advantage over the first nine minutes of the second half to go up by a score of 47-32.

Down 58-55 with three minutes to play, the Red Foxes came back with a calm demeanor and held the visitors scoreless until the game went to zeroes. With the Jaspers held without a basket, Marist closed the game on a 7-0 run. Jay Bowie began the run with the game-tying three-pointer off of an Isaiah Morton assist.

After single free throws by Lewis and Morton put Marist in the driver's seat at 60-58, Price clinched the victory with a pair of makes with 1.4 seconds to go. The contest would go final at 62-58.

For the game, Marist outshot the Jaspers 46.2 percent (18-39) to 36.0 (18-50) from the field and 50.0 (9-18) to 21.1 (4-19) from three-point range.

Chavaughn Lewis led a quartet of Red Foxes in double figures with a team-high 17 points.

Scouting Canisius ...

The Golden Griffins are a team in transition that is gelling quickly under new head coach Jim Baron. Picked ninth in the MAAC Preseason Poll, Canisius is using a mixture of veteran returners like Harold Washington (17.5 ppg & 12 3pts) and Jordan Heath (10.2 ppg & 11 blocks) and transfers, such as Billy Baron (18.0 ppg & 5.5 apg) and Issac Sosa (6.7 ppg) to get off to its fast start.

They opened MAAC play with a 67-55 victory on the road at Fairfield on Friday night.
