    Lehigh comes into Friday’s game – their 10th of the season – shooting the ball better (.417 vs. .352 FG%) and scoring more points (71.6 vs. 59.3 ppg) than Marist. We also hit a greater percentage of our 3’s (.323 to .297) and free throws (.736 to .718). We turn the ball over fewer times (14.4 to 16.6) per game and post similar rebounding numbers (35.4 to 35.8 pg). So, a win for Lehigh, right? Hopefully, but it’s never that simple. Give Marist credit, they’ll already 2 and 1 at home this year with wins over Niagara and Canisius (RPI: 180) – two teams that were picked to finish ahead of them in the MAAC. And, you can’t blame the Red Fox for dropping games to: BU, George Washington, Villanova, Wake Forest and Rutgers. All things considered, they’re just not that bad. Marist, a guard-oriented team with limited post production, will probably start two freshmen at the "4" and "5,"’ Bowie at 6’5" and Watson at 6’8." Combined, they average only 14.1 ppg and 8.6 rpg. In short, Marist couldn’t be more different than the team we just faced, the Justin Rutty-led Quinnipiac Bobcats. Game planning had to take on added significance out in Bethlehem earlier this week. And like us, the Red Fox continue to search for the right combination of players to put on the court at any one time. Ten players have already been tapped to start a game for Marist. One that won’t be in Friday’s starting lineup, however, is Adam Kemp. The Poughkeepsie Journal reported that he suffered a fractured hand in Saturday afternoon’s practice and is out indefinitely. Kemp, a 6’10" freshman forward had been averaging 3ppg and 5rpg.

    Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30pm Friday.
