Andujar, Manhattan top Fairfield 60-42
MANHATTAN 60, FAIRFIELD 42
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) -- Emmy Andujar scored 16 points and
Michael Alvarado added 12 to help Manhattan defeat Fairfield
60-42 Sunday in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference
Rhamel Brown added seven points and seven rebounds for the
sixth-seeded Jaspers (14-17), who started the season 6-14 but
have won eight of their last 11 including an upset of
third-seeded Loyola 55-52 in the tournament quarterfinals.
Fairfield led 16-5 following a 6-0 run with 8:27 remaining in
the first half. But Alvarado's three-point play on Manhattan's
next possession sparked a 34-13 run that spanned both halves.
Brown capped the run with a layup as the Jaspers led 39-29
midway through the second period. The Stags never got any closer
than five from there.
Manhattan shot 53.8 percent (7 of 13) in the second half,
compared to 6-of-21 shooting for Fairfield (19-15), and
committed just eight turnovers all game.
Maurice Borrow scored 15 for Fairfield.
