GAME OF THE NIGHT: Manhattan 80, Iona 77 OT
A competitive game throughout, Manhattan lost its 10-point halftime lead, and went to overtime as Emmy Andujar could not complete his coast-to-coast layup. Andujar would come up big in overtime, giving the Jaspers a five-point lead with 24 seconds to play. Luckily, Manhattan’s missed free throws down the stretch didn’t give Iona a chance to force a second overtime or leave with the win. Iona has already wrapped up the MAAC regular season title, but Manhattan is looking to avenge last year’s MAAC championship game loss to the Gaels next week in Springfield, Mass.
Providence 74, Seton Hall 69: The Friars won their second straight Big East game. They avoid a bad loss on their tournament resume, and will have two more games — Marquette and at Creighton — to strengthen their case before the start of the Big East Conference tournament.
Harvard 72, Cornell 47: The Crimson moved one step closer to clinching the Ivy League title and punching their ticket to the NCAA tournament for the third straight season. Harvard was aided by Princeton upsetting Yale.
High Point 56, Campbell 53: After getting a scare, the Panthers remained the top team in the Big South Conference in the team’s regular season finale.
Emmy Andujar, Manhattan: Went for 28 points, six rebounds, three assists and three steals. Scored a bucket with 24 seconds left to put the Jaspers up five.
Bryce Cotton, Providence: Scored 17 of his game-high 24 points after halftime. He grabbed four rebounds and dished out three assists.
Billy Baron, Canisius: The senior guard scored 29 points and recorded 10 assists in the Golden Griffins’ conference win over Rider.
Yale shooting: Leading scorer Justin Sears had more than half of the Bulldogs’ field goals. Take away his made shots and Yale was 7-of-39 from the field. As a team, the Bulldogs shot 2-of-12 from behind the arc in a loss to Princeton.
Niagara’s turnovers: All five starters committed at least two turnovers as the Purple Eagles coughed the ball up 24 times in a 25-point loss to Monmouth.
Seton Hall streak: The Pirates have lost three straight and six of their last seven following a home loss to Providence. Seton Hall kept it close on Friday night, but Providence went on a run midway through the first half to open up its lead.
