Recap: Fairfield vs. Niagara

Bridgeport, CT (Sports Network) - Antoine Mason scored a game-high 17 points as the Niagara Purple Eagles held off the Fairfield Stags, 67-64, in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference bout at Webster Bank Arena.

Mason was dreadful from the field (2-of-13) but he made all 12 of his free throw attempts for Niagara (9-8, 5-1 MAAC), which has won five straight conference games and four of its last five overall. T.J. Cline chipped in 12 points, while Ameen Tanksley added 10 points for the visitors.

For Fairfield (10-8, 2-4), Justin Jenkins netted 16 points, while Derek Needham and Maurice Barrow each scored 10 points.

Both teams shot 44.4 percent from the field in the first half, but Niagara drained three 3-pointers and went 10-of-13 from the foul line to take a 37-33 lead at intermission.

In a back-and-forth second half, Fairfield broke a 50-50 tie at the 5:35 following a 1-of-2 trip to the foul line by Jenkins, but Niagara would retake the lead two minutes later on a Juan'ya Green layup, which proved to be the game-winner.

The Purple Eagles forced the Stags into 16 turnovers while committing just five themselves.
