POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – The Marist women’s basketball (7-4, 1-0 MAAC) team resumes Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) play against Canisius (4-7, 0-2 MAAC) on Tuesday, Dec. 31. Tip-off is set for 2 p.m. at McCann Arena. The Red Foxes are vying for their 10th MAAC Championship title, ninth consecutive, and 11th MAAC regular season title.

Fans who can’t attend the game can watch live on the Red Fox Network. Fans can also listen live with the voice of the women’s basketball team, Geoff Brault, on the Red Fox Network, WKIP 1450 AM, and iHeart Radio. The pregame show begins at 1:45 p.m. Giorgis will continue his dedication to helping fight hunger in the Hudson River Valley with a donation of a dime for each fan in attendance at home games throughout the season to hunger awareness. Kentucky head coach Matthew Mitchell and his wife will be matching Giorgis’ donation from the entire season.

The Red Foxes are coming off a historic 76-69 victory over #20/19 Oklahoma on Saturday, Dec. 21. This is the first win at home over a ranked opponent in program history and the second overall. Sophomore Sydney Coffey (Hopkins, Minn.) posted a career-high 25 points. Seniors Leanne Ockenden (Syracuse, N.Y.) and Casey Dulin (Milford, Conn.) recorded 17 points apiece. Dulin added a team-high seven rebounds and seven assists. Senior Emma O'Connor posted 15 points, six rebounds, and three steals. With the win, Marist continues its six game winning streak, taking victories in seven of its last eight games.

Canisius is heading into Poughkeepsie coming off its second consecutive MAAC loss, falling to Manhattan 72-56 on Sunday Dec. 29. Junior Kayla Hoohuli led the Golden Griffins with 13 points while sophomore Tiahana Mills had 12 points, five rebounds, and four assists. Sophomore Crystal Porter added eight points and a career-high 10 rebounds. The Golden Griffins recorded 25 turnovers, leading to 30 points, which proved costly in its second conference loss of the season.
