Canisius-Marist game analysis

Game Analysis: Canisius kept its MAAC Tournament quarterfinal game against Marist close for the first 25 minutes, but the Red Foxes defense clamped down and pulled away for a 57-38 victory on Friday.

How Canisius Lost: Neither team shot particularly well, but the Golden Griffins shot just 24.6 percent for the game. Marist cut off the inside presence of second-leading scorer Ellie Radke who scored just three points while guard Brittane Russell was 6 of 19 from the field and 2 of 11 from three-point range.

Turning Point: Tasia Lee hit a jumper with 16:44 left to cut Marist’s lead to a point when the Red Foxes went on an 11-0 run to go up 36-25. They never looked back. 

Player of the game: Marist guard Corielle Yarde scored 16 points with nine rebounds and 7 of 10 shooting from the free-throw line.

Unsung player of the game: Marist’s Brandy Gang came off the bench to score nine points and hit back to back to give the Red Foxes a 13-point lead late in the game.

Worth mentioning: The Golden Griffins’ Tasia Lee finished with a game-high 11 rebounds, including four offensive boards.

Stat of the Game: Canisius shot only six free throws, making five.

He Said It: “She’s one of the best guards to ever play at Canisius, a complete stat-sheet stuffer if you look at her statistics it’s absolutely phenomenal.’’ – Canisius coach Terry Zeh on senior guard Brittane Russell.

Next Up: End of the season.
