Halftime at the Harbor: Fairfield leading Marist 41-35

The Stags have come out firing on all cylinders and have a six point lead heading into the half. Fairfield has led by at least four except for 4-2 early in the game and have led by as much as 12.

  • Stat o' the half: Fairfield shooting 60 percent from the field, while holding Marist to 40 percent.
  • Player o' the half: Marty O'Sullivan - The super-senior is again playing as if every minute is his last and he has a game-high 12 points so far, along with a rebound and an assist in 13 minutes of play. Junior Jonathan Han also has 12 points and has dished out three assists, while pulling down four boards.
  • Keys to the second half:
    1. Keep on shooting: The Stags have been as perfect as possible from the floor, 15-for-25, while also hitting 4 of 9 three-pointers. Marty is 4-for-6, while Han is 4-for-5.
    2. Guard the perimeter: Ryan Schneider has hit two big threes so far for Marist, both keeping them in the game as Fairfield looked to pull away, but the team is 3-for-10 from beyond the arc and to win, the Stags will need to keep them quiet. On the season Marist is shooting 39 percent from three, but were 30 percent in the first half.
    3. Stop Spongy: Benjamin has 12 points on 6-for-10 shooting, tied for the game-high in scoring. He also has six rebounds in his 17 minutes on the court.
