POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - The Marist women's basketball team used a timely defense and a strong, balanced offensive attack, with five players registering in double figures, to come away with a hard-fought 75-64 win over Siena Monday night in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) game at McCann Arena.

Kristina Danella (Manalapan, N.J.) led the Red Foxes with 17 points, including going 8-8 from the free throw line for the second time in eight days, and tied for the team lead with five rebounds. Elizabeth Beynnon (Burlington, Vt.) had 14 points and Casey Dulin (Milford, Conn.) matched that while also adding five rebounds and tying a season-high with six assists. Leanne Ockenden (Syracuse, N.Y.) finished with 13 points, going 3-6 from three point range, had five rebounds and tied her career-high with five steals - the fourth time she has met that total this year. Sydney Coffey (New Hope, Minn.) was also in double figures with 10 points.

Ockenden scored the first six points of the game on two three-pointers, giving Marist (13-6, 8-0 MAAC) a 6-4 lead less than three and a half minutes into the game. She had been in a slump, having only hit one trey in the past three games.

Siena (7-12, 3-5 MAAC) closed to within one at 12-11 with 13:57 left, but the Red Foxes answered with a 19-3 run over an 8:12 span to open a 17-point lead at 31-14. Coffey, Beynnon and Dulin all hit three-pointers as Marist opened up the game a perfect 5-5 from beyond the arc. Beynnon added two more layups and Dulin made one of her own while Danella contributed four points on two free throws and a baseline jumper.

A three-pointer by Natalie Gomez (Andover, Mass.) pushed Marist's lead to 19, its largest of the night, at 36-17 with 4:16 left.

Siena closed the half on a 12-6 run of their own however, cutting Marist's lead to 46-35.

The 46 points is a season-high for Marist in the first half and tied for the second most in any half for the Red Foxes this year. Marist was 7-9 from three-point range at the midway point, marking only the fifth time the team had hit that many three-pointers in an entire game.

The offense that shot 60% in the first half did not show up at the beginning of the second as Siena took advantage of the Marist's cold shooting and used a 14-4 run to climb back to within one point at 50-49 with 14:02 left to play.

After a few back-and-forth possessions with no scoring change, Coffey hit one of two from the free throw line and made a driving layup in heavy traffic to extend the lead to four at 53-49. Dulin followed with a three-point play to give the Red Foxes some breathing room at 56-49 with 10:49 left.

A long jumper by Ockenden maintained Marist's lead at seven at 60-53 with 8:30 left. The rest of the way, the Red Foxes did not let Siena get any closer than that as they went 8-8 from the free throw line - four by Dulin and two each by Coffey and Danella.

Marist remains at home to host Canisius on Friday night in a 7 p.m. contest. It will be the Red Foxes final home game for two weeks as they will play three straight on the road.

Notes - Just prior to the game, junior forward Emma O'Connor (Lynbrook, N.Y.) was named the MAAC Co-Player of the Week after her career-high 20 points against Manhattan on Friday... Marist is now 11-0 and 26-1 in the past two seasons when scoring at least 60 points... The Red Foxes have won 33 consecutive home MAAC games and have an 18-game overall winning streak against conference opponents.
