The Bryant Bulldogs and the Manhattan Jaspers meet in college basketball action from the Draddy Gymnasium on Sunday.

The Bryant Bulldogs will look to build on their 79-60 win over Stony Brook last time out. Charles Pride leads the Bulldogs in scoring with 16.7 PPG along with 7.1 RPG and 2.5 APG while Sherif Gross-bullock has 15.8 PPG with 4.5 RPG and a team-high 4.1 APG to lead the Bulldogs in assists. Earl Timberlake has 14.9 PPG with a team-high 8.1 RPG to lead Bryant on the glass with 3.4 APG as well while Antwan Walker has 13.2 PPg with 6.6 RPG to cap off the scoring in double figures for Bryant so far this season. As a team, Bryant is averaging 88 PPG on 46.3% shooting from the field, 36.9% from three and 73.5% from the foul line this season.

The Manhattan Jaspers will look to bounce back from a 99-59 loss to Providence last time out. Ant Nelson leads the Jaspers in scoring and assists with 13.3 PPG and 3.8 APG while Josh Roberts has 13.3 PPG with a team-high 9.7 RPG to lead the Jaspers in rebounding this season. Elijah Buchanan has 11.4 PPG with 5.2 RPG and Samir Stewart has 11.5 PPG to cap off the scoring in double figures for Manhattan so far this season. As a team, Manhattan is averaging 67.4 PPG on 44% shooting from the field, 32.8% from three and 62.2% from the foul line this season.

Bryant is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games following an ATS win while the over is 12-3 in their last 15 road games. Manhattan is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games following a win by 20+ points while the over is 5-1-1 in their last 7 Sunday games.

I get the case to be made for Manhattan as a home underdog, and I’m still a bit scarred by recent performances from the Bulldogs. However, Bryant is just on another level when it comes to offensive efficiency and I just think this ends up being a game where Manhattan tries their best but is unable to match the pace that Bryant’s going to bring and the scoring that comes with it. Give me the Bulldogs here.
