POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Adam Kemp scored 23 points and Chavaughn Lewis 21 as Marist defeated Loyola (Md.) 69-64 Sunday, preventing the Greyhounds from tying Niagara for the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference lead.
Kemp also grabbed 13 rebounds as the Red Foxes (7-18, 4-10) were able to build on the momentum of their wild 105-104 win over Iona in two overtimes Thursday night. That win ended a stretch of 12 losses in 13 games.
Marist led 63-56 with 2:31 remaining, but Loyola cut the margin to one point, 63-62, with 59 seconds left.
A layup by Kemp made it a three-point game and a dunk by Lewis, whose 65-footer forced the second overtime against Iona, made it 67-62 at the 0:24 mark.
Lewis made 11 of 15 free throws, as the Red Foxes made 25 of 37 to Loyola's 12 of 26 (46.2 percent).
Erik Etherly led Loyola (17-9, 9-5) with 22 points.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
