In Saturday’s game versus Bucknell, Marist was able to stop their slide. The Foxes were outscored 30-27 in the second half and needed overtime to get a 60-54 win. Javon Cooley doubled up in that one with 13 points and 11 boards. 

PICK: I’m going to stick with Columbia. The Lions didn’t look great in their loss to a good Friars team on Saturday but they weren’t downright awful. Columbia shot 38.7 percent from the field with 10-of-13 (76.9 percent) from the line and 36 rebounds. Prior to that game, Columbia had a nice run of scoring 70 or more points for five straight games. I like the Lions to get over that threshold against Marist and bag a cover.
