MARIST MEN GO ONE AND DONE IN TOURNEY

Red Foxes Struggle Offensively In MAAC Tournament Loss

ATLANTIC CITY – For three-quarters of the game, the Marist College men’s basketball team couldn’t throw the ball in the ocean – even though it was just outside the door to Atlantic City’s Convention Center, home to the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Tournament.

When the Red Foxes finally got hot, it was too late.

Coming off its first winning season in 12 years, fourth-seeded Marist went one and done in the tournament, losing Thursday night to No. 5 Niagara, 67-62.

The Foxes finish the unique season at 12-9 overall.

Raheem Solomon came off the Niagara bench to score 17 points to lead the Purple Eagles, who will play No. 9 Iona in the semifinals Friday. Kobi Nwandu had 15 points and three blocks for Niagara and Nicholas Kratholm added 10 points.

Jordan Jones had 14 points and 10 rebounds for Marist.  Raheim Sullivan added 12 points. Hakim Byrd had 11 points.
