Red Foxes & Purple Eagles, January 3 at Niagara ...
Marist lost at Niagara, 94-72 at the Gallagher Center.

An ice-cold start to the game put the Red Foxes in a deficit that they would never be able to overcome versus a high-scoring Purple Eagle squad.

Chavaughn Lewis led the Red Foxes with 17 points. He shot 8-for-12 from the field, and added five rebounds and five assists.

Dorvell Carter had 11 points and six rebounds off of the bench, while Adam Kemp just missed a double-double with 10 points and a team-high nine rebounds.

Niagara scored the game's first 13 points as Marist was scoreless until the 12:49 mark of the first half when Carter found Eric Truog for a layup near the basket.

A 5-0 run was the largest scoring run for Marist in the first half as they carved a 13-point lead down to eight at 26-18.

Niagara would close the final portion of the half by a 25-12 margin to take a 51-30 lead into the locker room.

In the second half, Niagara continued its hot shooting, consequentially Marist was never able to get the game back into single digits.

The Red Foxes' best span of play in the second period was an 18-7 run from 5:02 to 1:24 to shave 11 points off of Niagara's lead.

Last Time Out ... Feb. 10 versus Loyola ...
Marist pulled out its second consecutive second half come-from-behind victory at home on Sunday when it defeated Loyola 69-64.

A close game throughout, Adam Kemp came through with his second straight 20+ point, 10+ rebound game to lead the Red Foxes to victory over the Greyhounds.

Kemp finished the contest with team-highs in points (23), rebounds (13) and blocks (2).

Chavaughn Lewis aided his big man with 21 points; his fifth straight game with 21 or more points. Isaiah Morton filled up the box score with nine points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals in 40 minutes of action.

Consecutive made baskets by the Red Foxes in the final 33 seconds made it a 27-26 contest at the halftime break.

Loyola continued to hold a slight lead coming out of the locker room in the second half until an Eric Truog layup at 15:29 gave Marist back the lead, 35-34. The Red Foxes extended their lead further on the next possession as Morton picked Anthony Winbush's pocket and hit a wide-open Jay Bowie for an uncontested trey.

Following a 6-0 run by the Greyhounds to make it a 40-38 game, the Red Foxes fired back with a 7-0 run of their own to make the score 45-40 at 10:58. This would mark the final lead change.

Down the stretch over the final 10, the Red Foxes kept their composure and played their style of basketball. Their composure was on display with calm demeanors at the foul line (they hit 80 percent, 12-15), as well as with their ball control, as they only had two turnovers.
