The Marist Red Foxes go on the road to challenge the Siena Saints in MAAC action.
The Marist Red Foxes have suffered through many seasons where the main objective was to distance themselves from the conference basement. The Red Foxes might be going through a similar season at 4-15 overall which includes a nine game losing streak. Marist comes off of a 69-66 defeat to visiting Niagara as a 4.5 point favorite. The Purple Eagles rode a strong second half to rally from an eleven point deficit. Marist shot the ball well at 49% but Niagara rode eleven more shots and 44% marksmanship to squeeze out the win. Khallid Hart led the offense with 17 points with Isaiah Lamb scoring 15 points while Brian Parker chipped in with nine points.

After a dismal season a year ago the Siena Saints have remained healthy and are winning games. The Saints have won five of six with contributions in most areas. The Saints come off an 82-70 win at Niagara where they built a six point lead and never let the purple Eagles come back. Niagara was limited to less then 39% with a 3-16 mark on threes doing them in. The Saints fired away at 49% for seven more field goals to pull away for the win. Nico Clareth led Siena with 24 points on ª-17 with Brett Bisping adding 20 points and 12 rebounds. Ryan Oliver was next in line with 14 points followed by an eleven point, six pull effort from Javion Ogunyemi.
The over is 10-3 in Marist last 13 overall and the underdog is 19-7-3 ATS in the last 29 meetings. I think Siena has blow out potential but I hesitate to lay big chalk with them…
