Hamden, CT (SportsNetwork.com) - Ousmane Drame scored 22 points, leading four players in double figures, as the Bobcats of Quinnipiac captured an 83-79 win over the Fairfield Stags in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action at TD Bank Sports Center.

Drame, who shot 10-of-11 at the free-throw line in the meeting, also pulled down eight rebounds and blocked six shots for the Bobcats (5-2, 1-0 MAAC) in their conference opener after coming over from the Northeast Conference. Zaid Hearst produced 20 points and Kasim Chandler 14 off the bench, while Ike Azotam delivered a double-double consisting of 16 points and a game-high 14 rebounds. Shaq Shannon made up for an 0-of-6 shooting effort with 11 boards and five assists.

Despite shooting only 38.5 percent from the floor in the first half, Fairfield was able to remain within striking distance at the break, trailing by only six points, 44-38. The Stags would not have been behind had it not been for a 19-4 scoring advantage for the Bobcats at the free-throw line.
