Niagara, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Maurice Barrow knocked down 5-of-6 shots behind the 3-point line as he finished with 19 points for a Fairfield squad that captured a 72-66 win over the Niagara Purple Eagles in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action at the Gallagher Center.

Also scoring in double figures for the Stags (6-22, 3-14 MAAC) were Marcus Gilbert and Steven Johnston with 15 and 14 points, respectively, while Amadou Sidibe tallied nine points and 10 rebounds for a team that snapped a three- game slide.

The Purple Eagles (6-22, 3-14) were paced by Antoine Mason with a game-high 22 points, followed by Wesley Myers (17 points), Marcus Ware (11) and Ramone Snowden (10) as the squad's losing streak reached seven games.

Niagara had a hard time finding the basket from all over the floor, shooting only 9-of-30 from the field, including 2-of-7 beyond the arc, and 4-of-13 at the free-throw line in the first half, en route to a 34-24 deficit at the break.
