Turn-overs and foul trouble again spelled disaster for the Hamilton Marines. Bailey Merritt, coming into the game averaging a double double, had to sit for long stretches of the second and third quarters and the Marines couldn’t find an answer for the loss in scoring.
Marko Stanojcic had another big scoring night, putting up 23 and 16 rebounds, but the Marines were off balance and disjointed all night. Alex Thain had 9, Bailey Merritt 7, and Jacob Pattee and Cory Barnes each added 4.
The Marines will return to the hardwood Friday night at home against Fremont.
