West Long Branch, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Jay Bowie scored 24 points and pulled down 10 rebounds as the Marist Red Foxes survived a double-overtime affair to capture a 96-92 win against the Monmouth Hawks in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference contest at the MAC.

Chavaughn Lewis accounted for a game-high 28 points, clearing eight rebounds and handing out five assists for the Red Foxes (11-15, 8-8 MAAC) as they won their second in a row and the fifth in the last six outings. Khallid Hart tacked on 26 points and Manny Thomas 10 off the bench for the visitors.

The Hawks (10-17, 4-12) were paced by Deon Jones with 27 points and seven boards in 47 minutes of action off the bench. Zac Tillman responded with 17 points and seven rebounds, Andrew Nicholas 16 points and Josh James 13 and six assists as the team's losing streak reached seven games.

Monmouth shot an impressive 55.6 percent from the field in the first half, but the team led by just two points at the break, 35-33, after the Red Foxes converted 8-of-17 behind the 3-point line.

In the second half the Hawks dipped down to 48.1 percent from the floor and that allowed Marist to move out to a double-digit advantage, 71-61, with 4:27 to play in regulation. From there, the Red Foxes closed on a 10-0 run, with a layup by Nicholas locking the score at 71-71 with 44 seconds left.

In the first overtime session a free throw by Thomas with 28 seconds to play provided Marist with an 82-79 advantage, but Nicholas again stepped up for the hosts with a 3-pointer in the final 10 seconds to send the meeting to yet another overtime.

For the most part, the final overtime was controlled by Marist as the team scored six second-chance points to capture the hard-fought victory.

The meeting featured 14 ties and 13 lead changes and Monmouth came out on the losing end despite shooting 50.7 percent from the field.
