Marist earns 73-60 win on Senior Day over Fairfield

The Marist basketball team closed its regular season with a 73-60 Senior Day win over Fairfield at McCann Arena in Poughkeepsie.

POUGHKEEPSIE - The Marist men’s basketball team closed its regular season with a wire-to-wire Senior Day home victory over Fairfield by a score of 73-60. A fast start and strong shooting percentages in both halves led the Red Foxes (10-20, 6-12 MAAC) to the win against the Stags (17-14, 9-9 MAAC).

On a day in which Marist honored its three graduating seniors Devin Price, Dorvell Carter and Jesse Martin it was two juniors and a sophomore, who took the offensive reigns. Sophomore Chavaughn Lewis led the Red Foxes with 24 points, his 11th game this season with 20+ points. Junior center Adam Kemp notched his 10th double-double of the year with 14 points and 11 rebounds.

Led onto the floor by the senior trio of Price, Carter and Martin, the Red Foxes jumped out to a quick six point lead at 9-3 less than five minutes into the game. All three players aided in the speedy break out on the scoreboard, as Price hit Lewis on the fast break for a rim-shaking dunk, Carter hit a jumper from the paint and Martin played tight man-to-man defense on All-MAAC Preseason First Teamer Derek Needham.

Marist would extend its lead to eight points at 15-7 two minutes later after Carter converted a traditional three-point play via the "and one."

After Fairfield cut its deficit down to three at 18-15 at 9:24, the Red Foxes would respond with a 16-4 run from 9:03 to 3:34 to go up 34-19. Bowie was the leading producer for Marist during this run as he netted seven points on three-for-three shooting, including a trey from the corner. A 9-0 run by the Stags made it a 34-28 game at the break.

In the second half, the Red Foxes immediately recreated the early momentum of the first period with a 6-0 run to extend their lead out to 12 points at 40-28.

With the score 51-48, the Red Foxes would push their lead into double-digits with a 9-0 run. Bowie capped the run with his second three-pointer of the afternoon.

With the game in hand, Head Coach Chuck Martin subbed off both Devin Price and Dorvell Carter to a standing ovation from the fans.
