    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Scott Saunders led five players in double figures with career-high 24 points Monday and Belmont routed Marist 102-74 in an NIT Season Tip-Off consolation game.

    The Bruins jumped on the Red Foxes from the outset and seldom let up. It has been that kind of season for the Red Foxes (0-4), who have been blown out by at least 20 points in each of their defeats.

    From the opening tipoff, Belmont (2-1) scored in spurts of at least six unanswered points four times in the first 14 minutes, building a 31-10 lead. The Bruins harassed Marist into 21 turnovers and took advantage of them for 30 points.

    Belmont led 46-19 at halftime and expanded the lead to 36 points in the second half.

    Ian Clark and J.J. Mann each had 12 points for Belmont, while Jon House and Mick Hedgepeth each added 11.

    Sam Prescott came off the bench to lead Marist with 15 points in 22 minutes.
