Niagara, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Maurice Barrow knocked down 5-of-6 shots behind the 3-point line as he finished with 19 points for a Fairfield squad that captured a 72-66 win over the Niagara Purple Eagles in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action at the Gallagher Center.

Also scoring in double figures for the Stags (6-22, 3-14 MAAC) were Marcus Gilbert and Steven Johnston with 15 and 14 points, respectively, while Amadou Sidibe tallied nine points and 10 rebounds for a team that snapped a three- game slide.
