The Marist Red Foxes and the Monmouth Hawks meet in college basketball MAAC-tion from the OceanFirst Bank Center on Thursday night.

The Marist Red Foxes will look to rebound from a 69-52 loss to Rider last time out. Braden Bell led Marist with 9 points on 4 of 9 shooting with 3 steals while Michael Cubbage and Matthew Herasme each had 8 points with 3 assists with Cubbage shooting 4 of 9 with 4 rebounds while Herasme had 6 rebounds and a pair of steals. Cubbage leads Marist with an average of 9.8 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2 assists per game this season. As a team, Marist is averaging 56.4 points on 37.6% shooting from the field, 30.7% from behind the arc and 58.9% from the foul line this season.

The Monmouth Hawks will look to bounce back from an 84-70 loss to Quinnipiac in their last outing. Deion Hammond led the Hawks with 15 points on 5 of 9 shooting with 3 threes while Melik Martin added 11 points with a team-high 4 steals and George Papas chipped in 10 points with 5 rebounds to finish off the trio of double-digit scorers for Monmouth in the losing effort. Samuel Chaput added 5 points with a team-high 7 assists while Marcus McClary had 6 points with 3 steals. Hammond leads Monmouth in scoring with an average of 15.3 points per game while Chaput leads the Hawks in assists with 3.6 assists per game and Mustapha Traore leads Monmouth in rebounding with 5.6 rebounds per game this season. As a team, Monmouth is averaging 68 points per game on 40.8% shooting from the field, 34.7% from behind the arc and 73.9% from the foul line this season.

Marist is 5-14 ATS in their last 19 games overall and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games following a loss while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record. Monmouth is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a loss and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 home games against a team with a losing road record while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. The road team is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings between these two teams.

This feels like a lot to be giving up with Monmouth, but the issue is that Marist doesn’t have the horses to keep up with many teams as the Red Foxes only score 56.4 points per game on the year and are scoring even less on the road, racking up 54.3 points per game this season. Monmouth is averaging 73.2 points per game at home on the year and I just think the Hawks are more capable offensively here, so I’ll lay the points with the Hawks here.
