POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- The Marist men's basketball team suffered a 64-58 loss to Rider in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game at McCann Arena on Sunday afternoon.

In a close throughout the final 25 minutes, sophomore swingman Chavaughn Lewis (Queens, N.Y.) led Marist with a game-high 24 points. He added five steals, five assists, four rebounds and a blocked shot. Lewis tied his career high in steals and assists, and scored over 20 for the third consecutive game and seventh time this season.

Junior center Adam Kemp (Sherrill, N.Y.) finished with 12 points, seven rebounds and three blocked shots. Kemp shot 5-for-6 from the field and 2-for-2 from the free-throw line.

The visitors jumped out to an early 16-6 lead over the first 6:23 of play as the Broncs opened shooting 6-of-9 from the field. Of note, all three missed shots came via Marist defensive blocks.

From 12:26 to 11:09, freshman Eric Truog (Chagrin Falls, Ohio) went on an individual 5-0 run to cut the double-digit deficit down to five.

After Rider pulled away to a nine-point margin at 22-13 with 7:47 left in the first half the Red Foxes went on a 10-0 run over the next 2:39. Lewis had a hand in all 10 points as he assisted on Kemp's dunk at 7:27 before scoring the next eight points himself via two three-pointers and a pair of made free throws.

The teams traded baskets down the stretch of the first half as the game was deadlocked at the half 30-30.

In the second half, Marist took its first and only lead of the period at 38-37 following an Isaiah Morton (Vineland, N.J.) three-pointer at 17:07.

The visitors took the lead for good when Jonathan Thompson knocked down a three 40 seconds later.

The game was close throughout the rest of the half, including three ties, but unfortunately for the Red Foxes and their home fans Rider was able to make timely shots and get second chances off of the offense glass. In the second half, the Broncs were able to pull down six offensive rebounds.

Rider held its largest lead of the half when the clock hit zero in McCann Arena with a final score of 64-58.

For the game, Rider outshot Marist marginally at 44.4 (24-54) percent to 42.0 (21-50) from the field and 41.2 (7-17) to 23.8 (5-21) from three-point range. While the Broncs out-rebound the Red Foxes 37 to 24, Marist outnumbered Rider in blocks, 6-1, steals, 8-5, and assists 12-10.

Rider is now 12-12 overall and 7-5 in MAAC play; Marist is 5-18 overall and 2-10 in the MAAC. The Red Foxes return to action on Thursday at Iona at 7 p.m.
