The Manhattan Jaspers look for their first win of the season when they face the Binghamton Bearcats.
The Manhattan Jaspers have kicked off the season with a pair of defeats against some decent competition in Florida State and UMass. The Jaspers defense hasn't been able to get stops which was obvious in their 77-68 defeat at the hands of the Minutemen in overtime where they were outscored 16-7 in the extra session as an eight point underdog. The defense wasn't completely at fault with UMass shooting just 40% and giving the ball away 17 times. The Jaspers connected at over 45% but also gave the ball away 17 times and lost it at the stripe with a 27-8 deficit. Emmy Andujar paced the offense paced the offense with 21 points, ten pulls and five helpers with Shane Richards adding 13 points followed by Tyler Wilson with ten ponts.
After getting manandled by Providence, Binghamton took out their frustration on an overmatched Hartwick College. The Bearcats took a 16 point lead at the break and never let up as they were far superior throughout the boxscore. The Hawks connected on only 33% from the floor while turning over the ball over 19 times. In contrast Binghamton hit shots at nearly 47% which was game over especially with 14 additional looks at the basket. Dusan Perovic was one of two double digit scorers with 18 points on 8-12 from the field with Yosef Yacob tossing in another 14 points. Romello Walker, Willie Rodriguez and Jordan Reed combined for 25 points as tthe Bearcats as 13 players saw the floor and 12 scored with Binghamton calling off the wolves early.
The under is 7-2 in Manhattan's last 9 overall while the over is 19-7 in Manhattan's last 26 non-conference games. For Binghamton the Bearcats are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. Manhattan is picked to finish 4th in the MAAC one year after winning 25 games and going to the NCAA's while the Bearcats won seven games which was actually a big improvement from the previous season. I don't believe Binghamton has a chance but with all the points I don't need them to win...
