Red Foxes & Saints, February 23, 2012 ...
Marist won a hard-fought contest over rival Siena at home by a score of 61-52. Tough defense and efficient offense down the stretch gave the Red Foxes their 12th win of season.

Chavaughn Lewis and Isaiah Morton led the Red Foxes with a combined 31 points and 10 assists.

The offense came early for Marist via the three-pointer as nine of their first 11 points were from distance. Morton found success with his first two attempts of the game to score the Red Foxes' first six points.

Marist kept the game at a seven or more point margin for much of the second half, including twice reaching a 12 point lead.

With their second 12 point lead at 46-34, the Red Foxes hit an inopportune 4:44 stretch of play where they shot 0-5 with two turnovers, while the Saints shot 5-7, with three made free throws. The outcome of this span was a 14-0 run and Siena's first lead of the second half at 48-46.

Marist gathered itself and came back with a streak of its own to close the game and clinch the win. Over the final 4:47, the Red Foxes outscored Siena 15-4 overall and 9-0 in the final 1:52.

The Red Foxes hit both of their three point attempts and seven of eight free throws in the closing minutes to earn the win.
