Bridgeport, CT (SportsNetwork.com) - Marcus Gilbert and KJ Rose both notched 15 points, leading the Fairfield Stags over the Monmouth Hawks, 60-56, in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tilt at Webster Bank Arena.

Maurice Barrow scored 11 points for the Stags (5-19, 2-10 MAAC), who snapped out of a five-game losing streak. Amadou Sidibe grabbed 10 rebounds in the victory.

Andrew Nicholas tallied 16 points to lead the Hawks (10-14, 4-9), who have lost their last four. Deon Jones scored 10 points and Tyrone O'Garro grabbed 11 rebounds.
