POUGHKEEPSIE, NY- Back in the Saddle Again.

The bucking Broncs were thrown for three consecutive losses, ending a five-game winning streak, but Rider is back in the saddle again after defeating Marist in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game Sunday afternoon.

Senior Jonathon Thompson (Orlando, Fla./Jones) scored 23 points, tying his career-high, to lead Rider victory. "I can't say enough about what Jon Thompson means to this program," said Rider head coach Kevin Baggett.

On Super Sunday, Thompson seemed to trade in his number 5 for an S on his shirt, making nine of 11 shots, including a career-high five of six three-pointers and grabbed six rebounds in 38 minutes of action.

The victory snapped a three-game losing streak for Rider (12-12, 7-5 MAAC) and extended Marist's losing streak to four. "Marist played hard," Baggett said. "I'm just happy this streak is over."

In the 1960s and '70s, the practice of streaking was popular on college campuses throughout the country. Thankfully, the fad seems to have faded away.

Thankfully, Rider's streak has also come to an end.

Rider junior Anthony Myles (Dover, DE/Poly-Tech) had his dunk blocked but got his own rebound and scored a reverse lay-up with 2:25 left to give Rider a 60-55 lead. Myles struggled from the field, making just two of 11 shots, but dished out a career-high five assists and grabbed seven rebounds. 

Myles was just one for six from three-point range but the one he made with 9:40 remaining broke a 47-47 tie. That was the sixth and final tie of the game.

"Anthony hit a big three for us there," Baggett said.

Myles made two foul shots with 4.6 seconds left for the final score.

For Marist (5-18, 2-10 MAAC), Chavaughn Lewis scored a game-high 24 points, including a layup with 10:30 remaining that tied the score at 47-47.

Rider sophomore Junior Fortunat (Montreal, Quebec/Roman Catholic), who missed the last two games with a concussion, played 22 minutes off the bench and finished with 10 points and six rebounds.

Rider junior Daniel Stewart (Philadelphia, PA/Neumann-Goretti) added 12 points and seven rebounds. Stewart's two foul shots with 12.6 seconds left gave Rider a 62-57 lead.

Marist out-scored Rider 7-3 over the final 3:20 of the first half to tie the score at 30-30.

Marist used a 10-0 run, eight points by Lewis, to take its first lead of the game, 23-22 with 5:00 left in the first half.

Rider jumped out to a 9-2 lead, five points by Thompson, and Rider led 16-6 after six minutes of play.

Rider out-rebounded Marist 37-24, six by Thompson

Rider has won six of its last 10 games. In the six victories, Rider has out-rebounded its opponents. In all three losses, Rider was out-rebounded.

Rider and Marist have now met 47 times since the series began in 1980-81, with Rider winning 25, including 10 of the last 11 and 16 of the last 23.

The Broncs made nine of 10 foul shots and seven of 17 three-pointers.

Rider lost by 20 points at Marist last year but came back to defeat the Red Foxes by 13 points at Rider. 

Since joining the MAAC, Rider is 20-13 against Marist, which includes 1-1 in postseason play.

Rider and Marist were Northeast Conference rivals for five years (1993-97) and both teams joined the MAAC for the 1997-98 season.

Rider hosts first-place Niagara Thursday night.
