POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP)—Ryan Thompson had 27 points and nine rebounds, Mike Ringgold added 18 points and 10 rebounds, and Rider beat Marist 74-61 on Monday night.

Marist led 54-50 after a pair of free throws by Javon Parris with 12:11 left, but a three-point play by Novar Gadsdon and a 3-pointer by Thompson gave Rider (14-9, 9-4 MAAC) the lead for good with 9:08 to go.
Thompson made four free throws, and Harris Mansell hit a 3-pointer as the Broncs pulled away in the final minutes to send the Red Foxes to their eighth straight loss.
