POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – Junior swingman Chavaughn Lewis (Queens, N.Y.) scored his 1,000th career point on Sunday, but the Marist men’s basketball team suffered a 75-48 loss to Southern Conference preseason favorite Elon in its home opener on Sunday at McCann Arena.

Lewis scored on a driving layup with 16:49 left in the second half to become the 29th player in program history to achieve this milestone. He led the Red Foxes with 13 points in the contest.

Red-shirt freshman guard Khallid Hart (Newark, Del.) scored a career-high 11 points, and was tied for the team high with five rebounds. A total of four Red Foxes had five rebounds in the contest – Hart, senior forward Jay Bowie (Tampa, Fla.), junior guard T.J. Curry (Brooklyn, N.Y.), and sophomore center Eric Truog (Chagrin Falls, Ohio). Truog added nine points off the bench in 16 minutes. Sophomore forward Phillip Lawrence (Baltimore, Md.) contributed a team-high three steals in 14 minutes off the bench.

The lead changed hands twice in the first three minutes of the game, but Elon surged to a 10-point lead thanks to four three-pointers by Tanner Samson in the first six minutes. Consecutive baskets by Hart cut Marist’s deficit to 16-10, but the Phoenix went on an 18-4 run to take control of the contest. Elon led 47-16 at halftime, led by as much as 34 in the second half, and never led by less than 25 after the intermission.

Samson led four Phoenix in double figures with a game-high 17 points, shooting 6-for-9 from the field and 5-for-8 from three-point range.

Elon shot .500 (30-for-60) from the field; Mairst shot .313 (15-for-48). The Red Foxes held a 37-32 rebounding advantage.

Elon improved to 2-0; Marist fell to 0-2.

The Red Foxes now begin a stretch of six straight games away from McCann Arena, starting with Wednesday’s contest at Saint Joseph’s of the Atlantic-10. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
