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 tournament semifinals.

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.
