At the half: Fairfield leads Marist 41-35

  • Benjamin takes a pass from Farmer and lays the ball in out of the time-out and its 32-26.
  • Mamadou into the game for his first action of the night and he misses a three, his first shot taken.
  • On the other end Mamadou deflects a pass to Han, who races down the court and throws up a circus lay-up that misses badly, but Gavin fouls him, his second foul and Han heads tothe line for two. He rims in the first shot and swishes the second, 34-26 Fairfield.
  • Schneider is open again and knocks down a three after a series of screens at the top of the key and the lead is now 34-29.
  • Schneider picks up a foul on the other end, the team's seventh, and Marty heads to the charity stripe for a 1+1. He hits both to give him 10 points and the Stags a 36-29 lead.
  • Han with a interception on the other end. He drives the floor and collides with Farmer, but no foul is called as the ball rolls out of bounds, giving the Red Foxes the ball back.
  • Mamadou on Jay Gavin, playing the frosh with tight, in-your-face defense as usual. Gavin has been pretty much quiet so far, with two points, but also two fouls.
  • Farmer heads to the line for a 1+1 after Edney fouls him away from the ball. Farmer sinks both and its 36-30, back to a six-point Stags lead.
  • O'Sullivan with a pump and turn around jumper, 38-31 Fairfield.
  • Former CT Post writer Mike Puma in the house tonight, now representing the NY Post.
  • Gavin drives and scores, 38-33 Fairfield.
  • Han knocks down a three to give him 12 points, tied for the team and game-high with O'Sullivan. Now 41-33 Stags with the shot clock off and Marist in possession.
  • Devezin drives and misses, but Benjamin tips it in. Cooley quickly calls a time-out to draw up one final play with 3.6 seconds left in the game.
  • Too bad not more students showed up tonight, somewhere in the ballpark of 30-50 are in attendance, I guess not many realize how well Fairfield has been playing.
  • Han throws up a half-court shot which misses and the Stags head into halftime with a 41-35 lead.
