RIVERDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Ryan Funk made a 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds left and finished with 17 points to lift Marist over Manhattan 62-59 on Tuesday night.

Marist (5-17, 3-7 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) rebounded from a 101-96 overtime loss to Manhattan (10-13, 5-6) on Jan. 2 and snapped a four-game skid.

Rich Williams split a pair of free throws to stretch Manhattan’s lead to 59-57 with nine seconds left. Connor McClenaghan then took the ball at midcourt, drove the lane and passed to Funk in the corner for an uncontested 3. A Manhattan turnover led to David Knudsen’s two free throws to cap the scoring.

Funk was 5 of 9 from the field, all for long range, and made both of his free-throw attempts. Knudsen added 14 points and Brian Parker had 12.

Rich Williams scored 19 point on 7-of-11 shooting and hit four 3s to lead Marist. Zane Waterman chipped in 17 points and eight rebounds.
