POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - The Marist women's basketball team used a 17-0 run during the first ten minutes of the game and ran away with a 68-41 victory Friday night in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) game at McCann Arena.  The game was broadcast nationally on ESPNU.

Kristina Danella (Manalapan, N.J.) scored a game-high 16 points off the bench, 12 of which came in the second half, and was a perfect 3-3 from three-point range. Leanne Ockenden (Syracuse, N.Y.) finished with 14 points, including four three-pointers in the first half. Emma O'Connor (Lynbrook, N.Y) was also in double figures with 10 points while making a career-high five steals. Marist had 18 assists to only 10 turnovers while making 13 steals and forcing 20 Niagara turnovers.

The Red Foxes (18-6, 13-0 MAAC) held Niagara (12-12, 7-6) without a field goal until the 9:15 mark, building a 19-2 lead and scoring 17 straight. O'Connor started the run with a three-point play and Ockenden followed with three consecutive three-pointers over a 1:58 span. Kristine Best (Commack, N.Y.) assisted on the first two treys and Elizabeth Beynnon (Burlington, Vt.) dished out the third. Casey Dulin (Milford, Conn.) then hit a pair of free throws before Beynnon buried a three-pointer of her own to conclude the run.

Marist went on another run, this one consisting of seven straight points, to take a 35-15 lead into halftime. Danella hit a three-pointer from the corner while being fouled. After she completed the four-point play, Ockenden hit her fourth three pointer to wrap-up the scoring.

Niagara could not cut the lead under 20 for the entire second half as Marist coasted. Senior Suzzette Garnett (The Bronx, N.Y.) went 1-2 from the free throw line and made her first career block and steal. Sophomore Maggie Gallagher (Stormville, N.Y.) scored her first points of the season late in the game on a three-pointer.

The Red Foxes continue their three-game home-stand with a 2 p.m. game on Sunday versus Manhattan at McCann Arena. The game is the annual Play 4Kay Breast Cancer Awareness game and the team will wear pink uniforms to honor the fight against breast cancer.

Notes - Danella was honored prior to the game with a ceremonial ball to commend her 1,000th career point, which she scored in Marist's last home game, Feb. 1 versus Canisius... Marist is now 15-0 this season when scoring at least 60 points in a game... The Red Foxes have won 23 straight conference games, including the postseason... In four of the past 11 games, Marist has held its opponent to 15 points or less in the first half.
