The Marist Red Foxes look for their first win versus the Charleston Cougars.
Marist has two glaring problems; they don't score and opponents do. Put this together and it's not hard to figure out why this team hasn't won a game yet. The Red Foxes fell to 0-9 following a 70-59 loss to visiting MAAC rival Manhattan in which the offense struggled to 36% from the floor and 2-13 from long range. The Jaspers hit at 43% which was plenty good enough because of their 25-15 edge at the line. Marist received a game high 23 points and five pulls from Chavaughn Lewis with Khallid Hart adding eleven points.

Sometimes Charleston scores, sometimes they don't and sometimes the defense is strong and sometimes it isn't. I guess that's inconsistency but to be honest I don't know if that's the right word to use. The Cougars have won consecutive games after knocking off sub division Coker 68-54 with both teams sinking shots at 43%. CofC dominated the backboards 42-21 including 16 offensive pulls that were turned in to a valuable 13 more shots. Adjehi Baru was the offensive star with a contest best 19 points and eleven rebounds followed by a 13 point performance from Anthony Stitt with Canyon Berry tossing in eleven. Altogether nine players received minutes and each reached the scoreboard.
I honestly don't have an angle in this one except Charleston is home and has won. Marist might get hammered here and I wouldn't be surprised but I'd look eleswhere before backing either...
