Marist Beats Siena
Marist gave away 1,000 Beat Siena T-Shirts Thursday night, and then the Red Foxes did just that. Jay Bowie's 3-pointer from the left corner pushed a two-point lead to five with 1:06 left keying a 9-0 run to close the game in Marist's 61-52 victory over the Saints in Poughkeepsie.
