SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Chavaughn Lewis led Marist with 17 points, seven rebounds and 2-for-3 shooting from 3-point range as the Red Foxes dropped Saint Peter's 64-57 on Friday night in the opening round of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament.

Jay Bowie had 14 points and also seven rebounds while Devin Price added 14 points as well for No. 8-seeded Marist (14-17). R.J. Hall came off the bench to score 10 points.

Marist will face top-seeded Iona in the quarterfinals on Saturday.

But Lewis hit back-to-back 3s to spark an 11-0 Marist run for the win.

Darius Conley had 19 points and 13 rebounds for ninth-seeded Saint Peter's (5-26).
