Rider snaps 3-game skid, pulls away from Marist 84-66
LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. (AP) — Stevie Jordan scored 15 points to help Rider snap a three-game losing streak with an 84-66 win over Marist on Saturday night.
Norville Carey and Jimmie Taylor each finished with 12 points for the Broncs, and Tyere Marshall added nine points and 13 rebounds. Rider (12-8, 5-4 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) shot 50.9 percent from the field and was stout defensively, holding the Red Foxes to 36.2 percent and 7 of 33 from deep.
Rider seized a double-digit lead early in the second half, 52-41, after a Jordan layup. A Khallid Hart layup for Marist cut the deficit back to six, 68-62, but nine straight Broncs’ points made it 77-62 and put the game on ice.
Hart led all scorers with 21 points for Marist (6-14, 3-6). Ryan Funk added 15 for the Red Foxes.
