— Four days after barely holding off Fairfield on the final play of the game, the Siena College men’s basketball team suffered a dramatic reversal of fortune.

Up, 64-62, with a chance to clinch the win, the Saints turned the ball over on an inbounds pass, and Jay Bowie nailed a three-pointer with three seconds left to spark Marist over Siena, 65-64, in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference game Friday night at the McCann Arena.

The loss dropped the Saints to 7-8 in the MAAC and 11-15 overall. Siena lost an opportunity to move into fifth place in the standings. Only the top five teams receive a first-round bye. Marist moved into a tie with Siena at 7-8. The Red Foxes are 10-15 overall.

Siena freshman point guard Marquis Wright scored a career-high 20 points and added three assists. Lavon Long contributed 13 points and 11 rebounds, while Brett Bisping, inserted back into the game midway through the second half despite having four fouls, scored 11 points and had eight rebounds, although he was the one who threw the ball away on the inbounds pass.

Marist, considered one of the strongest rivals of the Saints, was led by Khallid Hart with 16 points. Adam Kemp produced 15 points and 15 rebounds.

Also scoring in double figures were Chavaughn Lewis (14) and Bowie (10).

Siena shot just 31.7 percent from the floor, but held a 47-41 rebounding edge.

The Saints host Canisius Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Times Union Center.
