It was Senior Day at Rochester Institute of Technology today, but the day belonged to junior Marcus Lowe of Anchorage.

Lowe’s fingerprints were all over a 67-61 victory over Alfred University during NCAA D3 action in New York.

The 5-foot-8 starting guard finished with 10 points and 5 assists, with most of his damage coming in the closing six minutes.

With his team clinging to a 51-49 advantage, Lowe entered the game and immediately assisted on a jumper to push the lead to four.

At the 4:11 mark, he assisted on another jumper to make it 57-52.

With 1:16 remaining, he fed a teammate for a 3-pointer that served as a knockout blow.

Lowe, of Service High fame, added a pair of free throws with 18 seconds.

RIT finished the season with a 11-14 record, 8-8 in the Empire 8 conference.
