Blossom made the first basket in extra time and Blake Bozeman’s 3-pointer pushed Morgan State’s lead to 71-64 with 36 seconds remaining. The Bears made three of their four free throws in the final 20 seconds.

Chiles, a 7’2″ center, was 11-of-21 shooting and grabbed nine rebounds for Morgan State (1-6). Blossom finished with 16.

Jay Bowie led Marist (0-7) with 22 points, including 5 of 6 from behind the arc, and senior Pieter Prinsloo grabbed a career-high 10 rebounds.
