GameThread for Manhattan Jaspers at Buffalo Bulls

New, 67 comments

The final MAC BracketBusters preview in history - Hustle Belt

Well it's about time these in-state teams played each other again. It's been nearly 14 years since they last tangled. The Jaspers are yet another team that has trouble scoring, but this game does present an intriguing matchup for Javon McCrea: Manhattan's 6'7" junior forward Rhamel Brown, who averages 12 points, seven rebounds and three blocks per contest. He had an outstanding performance two games ago in a double-overtime win against Iona where he totaled 21 points, 17 rebounds and 7 blocks. Very McCrea-ish. The Jaspers have some good interior defense but Buffalo has a counter: Tony Watson has scored 55 points in his last two games, including 12 made 3-pointers, so he has no reservations trying to go deep on them.
