POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – The Marist women’s basketball team (13-5, 7-1 MAAC) hosts Saint Peter’s (3-14, 2-6 MAAC) on Thursday, Jan. 23 in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) matchup. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. at McCann Arena. Tickets are available for purchase on GoRedFoxes.com. Fans who can’t attend the game can watch live in HD on the Red Fox Network. Live audio with the voice of the women’s basketball team, Geoff Brault, can be heard on the Red Fox Network, WKIP 1450 AM, and iHeart Radio. The pregame show begins at 6:45 p.m.

Head coach Brian 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.

In its last time out, Marist defeated Canisius for the second time in the season series, 73-47. It was the program’s 200th MAAC win since joining the conference in 1997-98. Of the 200 wins, 178 have come under the Giorgis regime. Senior Emma O'Connor (Lynbrook, N.Y.) recorded her second double-double of the week, scoring 20 points and pulling 10 boards, ultimately earning her the honor of MAAC Player of the Week.

It was a big week for Marist on the national level; the Red Foxes received 11 votes in the most recent USA Today Sports Coaches’ Poll, essentially ranking 30th nationally. Also, sophomore Madeline Blais (Exeter, N.H.) leads the country in three-point field goal percentage, shooting .514 from beyond the arc.

Marist has won the last 17 consecutive meetings against Saint Peter’s, including the MAAC Quarterfinal games in 2011 and 2012. The Peacocks are currently 10th in conference standings, seeing only two MAAC victories against Monmouth (68-63) and Niagara (67-55). Two Peacocks average in double figures compared to Marist’s five. Saint Peter’s tops the Red Foxes statistically in one category: rebounds per game (37.0 to 32.2).

Following this matchup, the Red Foxes complete their two game home-stint on Saturday, Jan. 25 vs. Niagara and Wednesday, Jan. 29 vs. Rider. Tip-off for both games is set for 7 p.m. at McCann Arena.
