Tre Bowman accounted for 24 points, shooting 6-of-8 behind the 3-point line, and David Laury 21 for the Gaels (7-7, 4-1 MAAC) as they picked up their second win in the last three outings.

Still winless in conference play after six tries, the Stags (3-13, 0-6) were paced by Maurice Barrow with 19 points, followed by Sean Grennan with 16 and both Justin Jenkins and Coleman Johnson with 12 points in the team's fourth consecutive setback.
