Albany, N.Y. – Fairfield led by as many as 16 in the second half, but a cold shooting half helped the Peacocks come back as the game reached the game’s final minute.
Then Marcus Gilbert happened.
The senior refused to let the Peacocks back into the game by draining a three-pointer near the Stags bench to help put Fairfield into the MAAC tournament semifinals against Monmouth on Sunday.
