1/23 – Manhattan at Quinnipiac – 7pm


7pm - Manhattan at Quinnipiac -4  O/U 135.5

The Jaspers (8-9, 5-3 MAAC) lost to Rider in OT on Sunday to snap a 4 game winning streak.  6'6" F Emmy Andujar leads the team in scoring and rebounding and has hit the 20 point mark in 3 of the last 4 games.  Shane Richards and Ashton Pankey also give a scoring punch.

The Bobcats (10-8, 4-5) won at St. Peter's on Wednesday for their 2nd straight win and 4 of 5.  G Zaid Hearst is Quinnipiac's leading scorer with 20.0 ppg average while 6'9" F Ousmane Drame checks in with 14.3 ppg and 10.5 rpg.

Coach Tom Moore's Bobcats are always a top rebounding team and they lead the nation in total rebounding (44.9) and rebounding margin (13.5).

This shapes up to be a hotly contested MAAC game with both teams playing well.  I give the edge to the Bobcats primarily because of the rebounding dominance plus the home court edge.  They'll have to make their free throws down the stretch to cover the number.

Quinnipiac 67  Manhattan 62
