Game of the Day

Manhattan 74, Iona 73 (2OT)

Rhamel Brown grabbed his 17th rebound, 10th offensive, off a missed free throw and found Emmy Andujar who drove and scored a layup to put Manhattan up 74-73 with four seconds to go. Iona had one last chance, but the desperation three was off the mark. The Jaspers have won four straight as the fans stormed the court in MAAC action. Brown ended the game with 21 points, 17 rebounds and seven blocks.

Important Outcomes

No. 15 Georgetown 62, Cincinnati 55

The Hoyas took sole possession of first place in the Big East, by half a game, in the road win against the Bearcats. Markel Starks hit a three with over five minutes to go to put Georgetown up 54-51, which was the last field goal the Hoyas hit. Georgetown went 8-for-10 from the line to clinch its seventh straight win.

Stony Brook 65, Vermont 48

The top two teams in the American East met in New York, as the Stony Brook avenged a loss from earlier the season while creating separation in conference standings in a win against Vermont. The Seawolves hold a game and a half lead with four games to go. Stony Brook got a balanced scoring attack from Marcuse Rouse (16 – off the bench), Tommy Brenton (13) and Jameel Warney (12).

Harvard 73, Penn 54/Princeton 73, Dartmouth 55

Harvard beat Penn. Princeton beat Dartmouth. The Crimson are 6-1 in the Ivy League, half a game better than 5-1 Tigers. Harvard and Princeton meet Saturday at 7 p.m. in Cambridge with first place in the Ivy League on the line.

Manhattan 74, Iona 73 (2OT)

The MAAC is tight, and Manhattan only added to that with a win on Friday. Seven teams in the MAAC have winning records. Niagara and Loyola (MD) are one and two, followed by a three-way time for third — two games out — between Canisius, Rider and now Iona. Manhattan is three games out of first, tied with Fairfield.

Starred

Rhamel Brown, Manhattan

The junior center had game-highs in points (21), rebounds (17) and blocks (7) in a big win for Manhattan. The 6-foot-7 Brown came away with 10 offensive rebounds, none bigger than one off a missed free throw before finding Emmy Andujar for the game-winning layup in overtime.

Markel Starks, Georgetown

The junior point guard had 17 points and three assists in a win over Cincinnati. Starks hit a three that gave Georgetown a 54-51 lead, which they didn’t give back. He also hit 5-of-6 free throws in the final minute to ice the game.

Keifer Sykes, Green Bay

Sykes went for 23 points in a win over Cleveland State. The 5-foot-11 guard shot 6-of-12 from the field, 9-of-10 from the line, scoring the most points since Jan. 5 when he went for 21 in a loss to Detroit

Struggled

Clancy Rugg, Vermont

Vermont’s leading scorer, was held scoreless of 0-for-3 shooting, with three rebounds and an assists. Rugg was averaging 11 points per game.

Cincinnati 3-point shooting

The Bearcats shot 4-of-24 from behind the arc, including missing the last four shots to end the game in a loss to Georgetown. Sean Kilpatrick was 1-of-7 and Cashmere Wright was 2-of-8 from deep. Kilpatrick is shooting 36 percent from three on the season while Wright is 37 percent.

Dartmouth defense

The Big Green let Princeton shoot 56 from the field, and one percent better from the 3-point line. Dartmouth’s rebounding wasn’t much better, being outrebounded by the Tigers 34-21
