Rider @ Manhattan

Regular Season Records: Rider 12-18; Manhattan 15-14

What to Know

The Rider Broncs and the Manhattan Jaspers are set to clash at 5 p.m. ET March 8 at Boardwalk Hall in the first round of the Metro Atlantic Conference Tourney. The game is expected to be a close one, with Rider going off at just a 2-point favorite.

The Broncs beat the Monmouth Hawks 74-65 this past Saturday.

Meanwhile, Manhattan narrowly escaped with a victory as the squad sidled past the Iona Gaels 74-72.

A couple stats to keep an eye on: Rider has only been able to knock down 40.60% percent of their shots, which is the 18th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. Manhattan has experienced some struggles of their own as they have allowed their opponents to shoot 46.20% from the floor on average, which is the 29th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
