Lawrenceville, NJ (Sports Network) - Rhamel Brown finished with 10 points, 10 rebounds, and six blocks as the Manhattan Jaspers defeated the Rider Broncs, 62-51, in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tilt at Alumni Gymnasium.

Shane Richards added 19 points on 7-of-8 shooting from the field off the bench for Manhattan (6-14, 4-6 MAAC) as it snapped a three-game losing slide. The win came from a very balanced effort as 10 different Jaspers made a contribution in the scoring column.

Manhattan shot an even 50 percent from the floor and converted 9-of-11 at the charity stripe en route to its 29-26 halftime lead.

After the break, Manhattan improved to connect on 55 percent of its field goal attempts including 5-of-6 from beyond the arc. The Broncs were handed a double-digit loss after they went 2-of-10 from 3-point range in the final 20 minutes of action.
