Red Foxes & Stags, February 20, 2012 ...
Marist fell in a home matchup versus Fairfield by a 60-49 score.

A poor shooting first half proved troublesome for the Red Foxes, who held Fairfield to just four points over the final 7:40.

Chavaughn Lewis led Marist with 19 points scored.

With the game 10-8 at 12:00, the Stags then ran off 13 unanswered points until a Morton foul shot at 1:44 halted the run.

At the half, Marist found itself trailing 28-12. While 47.8 (11-23) percent shooting by Fairfield helped them in their lead, 16.0 (4-25) percent shooting by the Red Foxes put them down 16.

In the second half, the Red Foxes found their offensive stroke as they started out by shooting seven of nine from field, including four of four from long range.

Devin Price highlighted the run which cut the lead to 41-31 at 14:03 with three pointers off of assists by Morton and Lewis.

Over the next 6:23, Fairfield took its turn in getting hot, as the Stags lengthened their lead out to 20 at 56-36 with a 15-5 run.

Marist buckled down defensively from that 7:40 mark and held Fairfield to just four points to close the game, though unfortunately the offense was only able to score 13 points in response.

Last Time Out ... Jan. 19 vs. Saint Peter's ...

Chavaughn Lewis scored a game-high 19 points to go along with nine rebounds, five steals (career-high) and four assists.

Isaiah Morton had 10 points, a career-high seven rebounds and three assists while playing all 40 minutes.

Marist put on a strong defensive performance. The Red Foxes held the Peacocks to .259 shooting (14-for-54) for the game, and just .111 (2-for-18) from three-point range. Marist also held a 43-30 rebounding edge.

Led by a strong all-around effort, the Red Foxes jumped out to a quick 9-2 lead by 15:17. Four players scored and three had assists.

Following a tip-in by Anell Alexis at 13:05, Marist would find itself with its first double-digit lead of the game at 14-4.

In the second half, Saint Peter's quickly brought the game within single digits at 27-20, but over the next 7:28, Marist would hold the Peacocks to just six points.

The Red Foxes notched 14 points in response to Saint Peter's 6 to turn a seven-point game into a 15-point game at 41-26.

Devin Price's 64-game consecutive start streak ended due to an ankle injury suffered at Loyola.

Scouting Fairfield ...

Coming off of a six-game winning streak in December through early January, the Stags have recently been tripped in five consecutive MAAC games heading into Thursday. In an odd scheduling run, four of those last five games have been home-and-homes with Niagara and Loyola. Both teams are currently in the number one and two positions in the MAAC, respectively.

Individually, the Stags are led by Preseason All-MAAC First Teamer Derek Needham, who averages 14.5 points and 2.4 made three-pointers a game; he is the sole double-digit scorer on the squad. A pair of freshman forwards Amadou Sidibe (6.3 ppg/5.6 rpg) and Marcus Gilbert (5.7 ppg/3.4 rpg) have infused youth into the Stags' starting lineup.
