3:47 Remaining First Half; Fairfield and Manhattan tied 24-24

  • Big night around the MAAC as six teams are fighting for positions in the tournament. Rider is blowing out Saint Peter's 46-33 at the half in New Jersey, while Niagara and Siena are in a tight game at the half, 50-43 Siena in front in Albany. Marist and Iona started at 7:30 with Fairfield and Iona is leading 16-9 with 10:02 left in the first. If Marist loses and the Stags win, Fairfield will clinch at least fifth place. With a win, the Stags game against Rider will also be an important one, as it will determine at least the fourth place position in the league.
  • Darryl Crawford knocks down a three and the Jaspers take the lead again, 22-21 with 5:43 left in the half, Fairfield has gone cold and needs to wake up a bit.
  • Allen slashes out towards the three point line, pulls up and knocks down a jumper, 23-22 Fairfield back on top.
  • Andrew Gabriel fights to the hoop and scores, 24-23 Jaspers.
  • Han finds Anthony Johnson down low and he is fouled, but misses the shot. Peanut to the line for two shots – The first rims out and the second swishes through to tie the game, 24-24, 4:08 left in the first.
  • Smith drives towards the hoop and pulls up for a jumper and is fouled by Warren Edney, sending Smith to the line after the media timeout.
