Junior Katie Cizynski scored in double figures for the eighth-straight game, tying a career-high with 19 points to lead Fairfield over Manhattan 76-50 Sunday afternoon in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action at Alumni Hall.

Cizynski added four boards and four assists while shooting 8-for-9 from the floor and 3-for-3 from the free throw line for the Stags (11-6, 5-1 MAAC), who have won four straight.

Junior Brittany Obi-Tabot scored 20 points and nine rebounds to just miss a double-double.Senior Katelyn Linney posted 12 points, all on three-pointers, and grabbed four rebounds while junior Alexys Vazquez had 11 points and five boards.

Fairfield took advantage of hot three-point shooting by Linney and Vazquez at the start of the first half to built a 25-13 lead. Manhattan, meanwhile, went scoreless for a 4:40 span until Toni-Ann Lawrence hit a jumper at 6:06 to stop Fairfield's 8-0 run. Manhattan cut the deficit to 32-24 on a lay-up by Lawrence with just under two minutes left in the half. Vazquez countered with a lay-up of her own to return the lead to double digits. Fairfield took a 36-26 lead into halftime.

In the second half, the Jaspers used a 10-5 run over a 2:20 span to pull within 47-40 with just over 14 minutes left in the game. It as close as the Jaspers would get as the Stags used a 23-2 run to end the game.

Fairfield returns to action on Friday, January 25 when it closes out the season series with Siena College at 7pm in Alumni Hall.
