Red Foxes & Purple Eagles, February 26, 2012 ...
In their last matchup on Feb. 26, the Red Foxes cruised to a regular season finale win over Niagara by a score of 89-77.

The Red Foxes, led by Devin Price's career-high 32 point effort, held a double digit lead over the Purple Eagles for the final 38 and a half minutes of action.

Jay Bowie notched his second career double-double in the Red Foxes' 13th win of the 2011-12 season.

As a team, Marist outshot Niagara from the field at 54.5 (24-44) percent to 40.3 (27-67), from three point range at 42.9 percent (6-14) to 20.0 (5-25) and at the line 83.3 percent (35-42) to 72.0 (18-25).

35 successful foul shots was a season-high total for the Red Foxes and second time this season that they made over 30 versus Niagara.

Last Time Out ... Dec. 31 versus The College of Charleston ...
The first-ever meeting between the College of Charleston and Marist went the way of the visitors on Monday afternoon at McCann Arena by a score of 85-75. On the strength of hot and timely shooting by the Cougars, the Red Foxes' second half comeback was quelled down the stretch.

Following a quick Charleston basket to open the second half, the Red Foxes would mount an 11-5 run over the next 2:54 to cut down the lead from nine to three by 19:06. Manny Thomas netted eight of Marist's points on 3-3 shooting with two treys.

Though within two at 57-55 at 14:06, the Red Foxes could never draw even with the Cougars as they would slowly re-open a 10-point lead by the 8:37 mark of the period.

A layup by T.J. Curry and an "and one" by Devin Price would eventually draw the game within four at 79-75 with 3:54 left in regulation, but the Cougars would once again tease the home fans and shut out the host Red Foxes to close out the game.

Chavaughn Lewis led Marist in both points (23) and rebounds (7), and shot 10-for-17 from the field.

Dorvell Carter came off the bench to score a season-high 19 points in 22 minutes, and drained four three-pointers.

Manny Thomas scored 13 points on 5-for-9 shooting from the field and a 3-for-5 performance from three-point range.
