BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Josip Mikulic netted 16 points and Fairfield shot nearly 60 percent from the field as the Stags stomped Marist 71-37 Thursday night in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action.

Fairfield (11-10, 3-6) knocked down 59.2 percent (29 of 49) from the field and 11 of 22 from 3-point range, and snapped a five-game losing skid.

Mikulic hit 6 of 10 from the field and 4 of 7 from 3-point range, and Desmond Wade scored 13 points for Fairfield.

Derek Needham, coming off consecutive 20-plus point games, scored just eight points but tallied four assists, giving him 500 handouts in his career with the Stags.
