Manhattan is officially on the board. The Jaspers earned their first conference victory with a 78-69 victory over Niagara Tuesday night at Draddy Gymnasium.
For one final season MAAC play is a 20-game grind. The long season is ideal for Monte Carlo simulations. So that’s exactly what I’ve done.
Coaches can preach about hustle and desire all they want, and they surely will for the next three months of the college basketball season. But it’s very hard to win if you can’t shoot the basketball or score in and around the paint. Such is the dilemma St. Francis Brooklyn and Glenn Braica have had […]
Steve Masiello, like many mid-major coaches, often talks of games not truly being important until the conference tournament can at least be seen on the horizon. So a non-conference game on Dec. 9 doesn’t exactly qualify, even if it is the Battle of the Bronx against rival Fordham, a team that throttled the Jaspers last […]
Canisius erased a 15 point second half deficit to edge Manhattan 77-76 Friday night at Draddy Gymnasium in Riverdale, NY.
The road was a tough place to be for most of the local teams on Sunday. Hopefully Feast Week can give every team some much needed home cooking.
It was the “other” Zavier’s turn to shine Friday night. Zavier Peart led the Jaspers with 16 points as Manhattan dispatched local rival Hofstra 80-68 at Draddy Gymnasium.
The MAAC let three winnable games slip through its fingers and Sacred Heart surprised Hofstra in a busy night of college basketball.
The new freedom of movement rules might take some teams a little time to get used to. Manhattan, one of the most in-your-face defensive teams in the country, certainly needs some time. The Jaspers committed 34 personal fouls on Tuesday morning as they lost to Winthrop 94-81.
Going to be reviving this semi-regular feature to recap what happened around college basketball on big nights of the week. Considering there were 163 games on opening night, it seems like a great time to recap all the action.
