Rutgers shot nearly 60% from the field in the first half, building a cushion which would help the Scarlet Knights fend off the Manhattan Jaspers 63-55 Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden.
At the very least, Friday night probably spells the end for Steve Masiello’s red suit jacket. The normally impeccably dressed Masiello will seemingly try anything these days to change his team’s luck, especially after losing on a 75-foot shot last week at George Mason, even donning a checkered red suit jacket that he previously wore […]
Saint Peter’s racked up their first win of the season over a Big Ten team. The MAAC now has wins over teams from the Atlantic 10, ACC, Big Ten, Conference USA and the Mountain West Conference in the season’s first calendar month. Who might be next? We may have to wait another week, as conference play […]
Manhattan grabbed the lead with a quick run just before the first media timeout Sunday night against Northeastern, and as the Jaspers do – especially when they’re rolling – there was huffing and puffing and yelling and screaming, enough for the Mohegan Sun security guard positioned behind the bench to quip, “Man, those guys are […]

One thing Manhattan head coach Steve Masiello will tell you is that he is a devout New York Yankees fan. While he might enjoy the exploits of a team that has won the most championships in any sport, his test comes with having his team defend their own championship. Manhattan can’t hold onto a ‘Core Four‘ for […]
