Game 24: Rider (11-12, 6-5) at Marist (5-17, 2-9)

Who: Rider (11-12, 6-5) at Marist (5-17, 2-9).
When: Sunday, 2 p.m., McCann Arena, 107.7 FM The Bronc.
Last time out: Rider lost to Fairfield, 69-59; Marist lost to St. Peter's, 70-68 in OT.
Background: The Broncs look to snap a three-game skid against the Red Foxes, who have lost 11 of their last 12.

Rider's struggles have been on the offensive end. During this losing streak, it has failed to score 60 points in each of the three games.

Danny Stewart shook off a sore knee to score 22 points against Fairfield, but the Broncs were battered down low by Maurice Barrow, who finished with a career-high 25 points and 10 rebounds.

They also reverted to turning the ball over, coughing it up 17 times.

Rider had three turnovers during Barrow's personal 8-0 run that pushed the Stags' lead from 50-48 to 58-48.

Marist also lost its third in a row when St. Peter's Chris Burke made a layup with six seconds remaining in overtime.

The Red Foxes have already secured their fifth consecutive losing season — all under coach Chuck Martin.

Marist beat Rider by 20 in Poughkeepsie last season.
Projected starting lineups: Rider: G-Jon Thompson (Sr. 11 ppg), G-Anthony Myles (Jr. 12 ppg), G-Nurideen Lindsey (Jr. 9.1 ppg), F-Danny Stewart (Jr. 11.2 ppg), C-Dera Nd-Ezuma (Sr. 2.3 ppg).
