Marist holds off Manhattan 62-58 in MAAC opener
MARIST 62, MANHATTAN 58
POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) -- Chavaughn Lewis scored 17 points,
Devin Price had 14 to surpass 1,000 points for his career and
Marist held Manhattan scoreless in the final 3 minutes to win
62-58 Friday night in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference
opener for both teams.
The Red Foxes (3-5), who snapped a two-game skid, led by 13 with
8:08 remaining. The Jaspers (2-5) then used a 16-2 run, capped
by two Michael Alvarado free throws, to take their first lead at
56-55 with 3:02 left.
Alvarado's layup 2 seconds later, however, wound up as
Manhattan's final points. Jay Bowie's 3-pointer with 1:40 left
tied it, then Lewis and Isaiah Morton each hit 1 of 2 free
throws to give Marist a 60-58 lead with 6 seconds left.
Manhattan turned the ball over with 1 second left and Price was
fouled, making two free throws for the final margin.
Alvarado's 19 points led the Jaspers.
