Fairfield streak ends in heartbreaking fashion

Fairfield loses 65-64 on last second free throws from Marist's Smith. After a missed game winning shot, Smith got the rebound and scored, but the basket was waved off because it came after the clock. But a foul was called on Fairfield. Smith hit one of two free throws to give Marist the win. Herbie Allen drew an offensive foul the series before, but Fairfield could not score on the other end, setting up a last second shot for Marist.

The streak ends at 7, but I think this game establishes Fairfield as a legitimate contender, if that was not already known.

More later.

Frank Romano will be at practice tomorrow to give you insider details on the Stags.
