Final Score: Manhattan 90, Niagara 72

Riverdale, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - George Beamon tallied a game-high 27 points, leading five players in double figures, as the Manhattan Jaspers cruised to a 90-72 win over the Niagara Purple Eagles in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference contest at Draddy Gym.

Beamon converted all but one of his 12 attempts at the free-throw line and pulled down eight rebounds for the Jaspers (19-6, 12-4 MAAC) as they extended their win streak to five in a row. Rich Williams accounted for 14 points off the bench, Ashton Pankey dropped in 12, Shane Richards 11 points and Rhamel Brown 10 as he shot a perfect 5-of-5 from the floor on the afternoon.

The Purple Eagles (6-21, 3-13) were paced by Marcus Ware and his 19 points, while Antoine Mason and Tahjere McCall responded with 17 and 16 points, respectively, as the team dropped a sixth consecutive decision.

Manhattan scored the first points of the day and never looked back, limiting the visitors to a mere eight field goals through the first 20 minutes of play, en route to a 41-30 lead at the break.

In the second half Niagara showed signs of life with an impressive 61.9 percent accuracy from the field, but at the same time the Jaspers converted 58.6 percent in order to pull even further ahead and secure the lopsided home win.
