St. Peter’s 54, Marist 60
POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP)—Kaylen Gregory scored a career-high 15 points Friday as Marist beat St. Peter’s 60-54 in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play.
Ryan Schneider contributed 15 points and six rebounds for Marist (6-9, 2-1 MAAC), and David Devezin dished out eight assists in his first start since a mid-December heel injury.
Trailing 34-19 at the intermission, the Peacocks started the second half on a 12-1 run to cut the lead to single-digits. Marist responded with a 10-2 run of its own to extend its cushion back to a comfortable margin.
St. Peter’s (4-9, 1-2) couldn’t capitalize on the Red Foxes’ foul trouble. The Peacocks spent almost half the game in the bonus but only made half as many free throws (11) as Marist.
Wesley Jenkins had a game-high 16 points for St. Peter’s, and Ryan Bacon led all players with 10 rebounds to go with eight points.
