    EASTON, Pa. (AP) -- Will Whittington hit all six 3-point attempts in the first half on his way to a 25-point game Saturday as Marist defeated Lafayette 92-84.

    Marist (2-1) built a 42-24 lead at 6:16 of the first half, but Lafayette went on a 21-2 tear to go up at the break 45-44.

    Pat Betley, who had six of his seven 3-pointers before the half, paced the Leopards (3-4) with a career-high 25 points of his own.

    A James Smith free throw at 13:11 of the second half tied the score at 57, but the Red Foxes continued on an 8-0 run over the next 2:18 to go up 65-57 and never looked back.

    Smith, who had eight blocks, and Jared Jordan each tallied 21 for Marist, which saw all five starters post double figures.

    Everest Schmidt, who battled foul trouble, had 10 points and eight rebounds in just 19 minutes of play for Lafayette. Andrei Capusan added 16 points while Ted Detmer nabbed four steals.
