LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ— Red Foxes are considered one of the most invasive species on earth.   While all species compete to survive, invasive species appear to have specific traits or specific combinations of traits that allow them to out-compete native species. 

On Thursday night, the Red Foxes of Marist out-competed the Broncs over the last five minutes of the game on Rider’s home court, ending Rider’s three-game winning streak.

“Marist took this game from us,” said Rider head coach Kevin Baggett. “It’s a mentality. If you don’t have the right mentality, playing physical, it is going to cost you a game and it did tonight.”

The Broncs saw their three-game winning streak come to an end with a loss to Marist in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference National Game of the Week on ESPN3 Thursday night.

The win was the third in a row for Marist. The Red Foxes have won four of their last six games since losing to Rider on January 18.

Rider led 54-53 with 5:34 left to play.

With the score tied at 56-56, Khallid Hart scored five unanswered points to give Marist a 61-56 lead with 1:20 remaining. Hart finished with 15 points.

Manny Thomas made five of six foul shots in the final 31 seconds to preserve the win.  Thomas finished with 12 points.

It is just the second time in the last 14 meetings that Marist has defeated Rider.

Marist (9-14, 6-7 MAAC) out-rebounded Rider 47-26 and made 18 of 22 foul shots.

For Rider (12-10, 8-5 MAAC), senior Anthony Myles (Dover, DE/Poly-Tech) scored 17 points. “We were starting to take that next step (three wins in a row),” Myles said. “But we’ve been a resilient team all year and we will do it again.”

Rider used an 11-4 run, five points by freshman Jimmie Taylor III (Branford, Fla./Suwannee), to tie the score at 49-49 with 8:21 remaining. Taylor finished with 14 points.

Holding a 38-36 lead, Marist out-scored Rider 7-2, five points by Jay Bowie, to take a 45-38 lead with 12:21 left to play. Bowie finished with 14 points and 13 rebounds.

Marist out-scored Rider 10-2 to start the second half, six points by Adam Kemp, to take a 38-34 lead with 15:14 left to play. Kemp finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds.  “Kemp was the difference in the game,” Baggett said.

Trailing 22-20, Rider went on a 9-0 run, three points by senior Daniel Stewart (Philadelphia, PA/Neumann-Goretti), to take a 29-22 lead with 2:34 left in the first half, and Rider led 32-28 at halftime. Stewart finished 16 points.

Rider made nine of its first 16 shots to build a 20-17 lead with 7:50 left in the first half.

Rider is second in the nation in three-point field goal percentage (.422) and Marist is last in the MAAC in three-point field goal percentage defense (.385), but Rider shot just .227 (five of 22) from beyond the arc Thursday night.

“We shot too many threes and poor execution down the stretch,” Baggett said.

Rider travels to Quinnipiac Saturday afternoon, February 8. “I expect us to bounce back once again,” Baggett said. “They’ll come back ready to go.”

Red Foxes may be invasive but Broncs have proved to be resilient.
