Red Foxes & Hawks, Dec. 21, 2011 ...
Marist (5-6) defeated Hartford in an exciting double overtime contest by a score of 89-86. A late 16-5 run by Hartford (0-11) forced the game into extra time, where the teams needed two full periods to decide the victor.

Led by strong three point shooting, Hartford turned a late seven point deficit of 66-59 at 4:02 into a 70-70 deadlock with 22 seconds remaining. In the second half, Hartford shot 64.3 (9-14) percent from long range.

In the second and final five minute period, 75 percent (6-8) foul shooting and three steals led the Red Foxes to the 89-86 victory.

For the game, Isaiah Morton led four Red Foxes in double figures with a career-high 23 points on his 8-8 night shooting. He was joined by Lewis (16), Thomas (14) and Price (13). Alexis also posted a career-high as he corralled 14 rebounds.


8-for-8 (100%) tied Alan Tomidy's 1994 outing versus Army for best field goal percentage in a game in Marist's history.

Last Time Out ... Dec. 19 at Bucknell ...
In a back-and-forth battle, Marist suffered a 71-65 loss at Patriot League power Bucknell on Wednesday night. There were nine lead changes and 14 ties in the contest.

The back and forth manner of the game was abundantly clear from the beginning as 10 times the score was tied and five times it flipped between the teams during the first half. After an initial 13-7 lead in Bucknell's favor, the Red Foxes fought back to tie it with a pair of Truog baskets and a Price fast-break layup.

The teams went into the locker room with identical 37-point totals as well as with nearly identical statistics. Marist held slight advantages in field goal percentage at 40.6 (13-32) to 39.4 (13-33) and in foul shooting at 88.9 (8-9) to 80.0 percent (8-10).

A veteran Bucknell squad was unfazed by Marist's late lead of 56-51 and calmly tied the game up for the 14th time at 4:48.

From that point on, the Bison would hang on to the slimmest of leads (four times by two), but nonetheless never allow the Red Foxes to get that 15th tie or 10th lead change.

Five Red Foxes scored in double digits, led by Devin Price and Jay Bowie with 13 each. Chavaughn Lewis scored 12 on the strength of 8-for-9 shooting from the free-throw line.

Eric Truog had career highs of 10 points and five rebounds in 23 minutes off the bench. T.J. Curry had a season-high 10 points.

Scouting Hartford ...

The Hawks come into Saturday's contest off of a four-game roadtrip, which they split 2-2 with wins over Rice (58-51) and Fairleigh Dickinson (69-59) and setbacks at Niagara (75-59) and Arizona State (71-63).

Individually, Hartford is led by the inside-outside duo of F Mark Nwakamma (12.7 ppg/5.4 rpg) and G Yolonzo Moore II (11.4 ppg/4.6 rpg). Off of the bench, the guard pairing of Evan Cooper and Wes Cole combine for 15.0 points per game.
