LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. - In a hard-fought and close road contest, the Marist men's basketball team fell victim to a pair of late Rider scoring runs to take a 67-63 setback. In the final 10 minutes of the game, the Broncs (15-13, 10-6 MAAC) would post a 9-1 run and a closely followed 7-0 run on their way to the win over the Red Foxes (7-20, 4-12 MAAC).

Sophomore Chavaughn Lewis (Queens, N.Y.) led Marist with 18 points on 7-14 shooting from the field. His effort was aided by Adam Kemp's (Sherrill, N.Y.) eighth double-double of the year with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Junior Jay Bowie (Tampa, Fla.) gave the Red Foxes three players in double figures with an efficient 10 points in 20 minutes of foul-plagued action. Sophomore Isaiah Morton (Vineland, N.J.) filled up the box score in a complete game effort with nine points, seven rebounds and five assists in 40 minutes of play.

Marist opened the game with early success from long range as Lewis netted back-to-back three pointers to spot the Red Foxes a 6-2 lead.

After Rider equaled Marist at 7-7 at 16:07, the contest would be close and within one possession until 6:59 when the Red Foxes would hold a 26-20 advantage.  As part of an 11-0 run, Marist would extend its lead to 29-20 by 4:47. A trio of three-pointers spearheaded this run, as Morton, T.J. Curry (Brooklyn, N.Y.) and Manny Thomas (Brooklyn, N.Y.) knocked down the long range shots.

A 10-4 stretch of play by Rider to close the half gave Marist a 33-30 lead at the halftime break.

After the intermission, the Red Foxes got hot again with an immediate 8-0 run to expand their lead to a game-high 11 at 41-30 by the 17:04 mark.

A fast as Rider would cut down the margin to five with consecutive three-pointers, Marist would respond back with consecutive threes of its own courtesy of Bowie and Morton.

In control of the game by a double-digit number at 49-39 with just over 13 minutes to go, the Red Foxes would see the Broncs fight back with the first of three extend runs in the second half. Between 13:07 and 10:32, the home team would cut eight points off of its deficit.

After Marist built its lead back to five at 52-47, the Broncs would then go on a 9-1 run to re-take the lead.

The final lead change for Marist would occur on the following possession when Curry hit an uncontested three point from the wing to swing the score back in the Red Foxes' favor at 59-58 with 3:49 left to play.

An immediate 7-0 rebuttal by Rider would decide the game as Marist would have to try and fight back from a six point deficit with two minutes to go.

Unfortunately for the Red Foxes, the Broncs would hold on for the 67-63 decision.

For the game, Rider outshot Marist from the field 52.9 percent (27-51) to 43.1 (22-51). The Broncs also had advantages in three-point shooting 50.0 (8-16) to 43.5 (10-23) and foul shooting 71.4 (5-7) to 50.0 (9-18).

The Red Foxes will take a brief break from MAAC play to participate in their 2013 Ramada Bracketbusters matchup on Saturday, Feb. 23 versus VMI. Marist hosts the Keydets of the Big South Conference in a 7 p.m. contest at the McCann Arena.
