POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) — Robert Olson scored 19 of his game-high 21 points in the second half to lead Loyola (Md.) over Marist 75-69 on Saturday.

The Greyhounds (9-9, 5-3 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) led 40-28 at halftime, but struggled in the second half to earn their sixth straight win over the Red Foxes — their longest streak in the series.

Marist (4-16, 3-5) started the second half on an 18-4 run, taking a 46-44 lead with 9:52 left to play. Loyola missed its first eight shots in the second half until a jumper from Justin Drummond with 14:37 to go ended the drought.

A jumper from Adam Kemp gave the Red Foxes a 56-53 lead with 4:42 remaining, but a 3-pointer from Olson followed by a layup and two free throws from Shane Walker put the Greyhounds ahead 60-58 with 2:37 left.

Dorvell Carter led Marist with 16 points and Kemp finished with 13 points and 12 rebounds.
