Game 28: Marist (7-19, 4-11) at Rider (14-13, 9-6)

Who: Marist (7-19, 4-11) at Rider (14-13, 9-6).

When: Sunday, 4 p.m., Alumni Gymnasium, ESPN3, 107.7 FM The Bronc.

Last time out: Rider def. St. Peter’s, 72-57; Marist lost to Niagara, 57-54.

Previous Meeting: Rider won 64-58.

Background: Thursday was a must win and so is Sunday’s game against Marist.

Jon Thompson put it best before the victory over St. Peter’s, pointing out the Broncs were as close to first place as they were to seventh.

That hasn’t changed.

With the conference slate ending in the western New York trip (at Niagara, at Canisius), Rider doesn’t want to have to go there needing two wins to avoid the play-in round at the MAAC tournament.

The Broncs are tied with Iona and Canisius in third, two games behind first-place Niagara but only one game ahead of Manhattan and Fairfield, which are tied for sixth.

Baggett certainly isn’t looking past the Red Foxes, despite their 4-11 conference mark.

Marist has won two of its last three — over Iona and Loyola — and center Adam Kemp averaged 16 points and 14.5 rebounds per game in those two contests.

“If we want to get to the top, we have to separate ourselves,” Baggett said. “We have a big game against Marist, which is playing really well. They are playing with some confidence. That’s a game that is a concern and if we don’t start the game the right way, and play for 40 minutes, anything can happen.”

Projected starting lineups: Rider: G-Jon Thompson (Sr. 12.4 ppg), G-Anthony Myles (Jr. 12.7 ppg), G-Nurideen Lindsey (Jr. 85 ppg), F-Danny Stewart (Jr. 11.3 ppg), C-Dera Nd-Ezuma (Sr. 2.6 ppg).
Marist: G-Chavaughn Lewis (So. 15.6 ppg), G-Isaiah Morton (So. 7.6 ppg), F-Jay Bowie (Jr. 8.6 ppg), F-Manny Thomas (So. 4.9 ppg), C-Adam Kemp (Jr. 9.5 ppg).

I rarely leave responses, but i did some searching and wound
up here "Game 28: Marist (7-19, 4-11) at Rider (14-13, 9-6)".
And I do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind.
Is it simply me or does it look like some of these responses appear like written by brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if you are writing on other online sites, I'd like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you list of every one of all your communal pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
