POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Marist rallied for an 86-73 victory over Mount St. Mary's last night in a Northeast Conference game.

The Mountaineers (3-5, 0-1) shot 57 percent (17 of 30) in building a 42-35 lead at intermission.

However, the Mounties managed two baskets in the first 7:15 of the second period, as Marist (4-5, 1-1) opened the period with a 15-4 run to take a 50-46 lead with 13:05 to play.

Junior Michael Watson tied the game with a tip-in and a jumper with 12:20 left.

Senior Izett Buchanan, the NEC's leading scorer at 29.4 points per game, broke the deadlock with a spinning three-pointer from the top of the key.
