In a tale of two halves, Marist held the early advantage, behind the stellar play of senior guard Cody Gaynes (23 points), and BT has trouble tickling the twine and fell down 22-15 at the break. But the Titans turned the tide in the 2nd half, outscoring the War Eagles 40-27 and advancing to Monday's rescheduled final with a 55-49 win. Senior James Bryant, BT's only notable interior size at 6-3, had a big 2nd half, getting 11 of his 14 points and asserting himself against Marist big man John Treanor. Despite not being a true low post player's height per say, Bryant is very effective in close and is crafty getting to the rim. Junior combo guard Jax Bouknight had 10 points in the 4th quarter, including going 6 for 6 from the line to help seal the game. He's the perimeter 'yin' to Bryant's interior 'yang', a wiry hustler
