Springfield, MA (Sports Network) - Emmy Andujar finished with 16 points, five rebounds and three steals as the sixth-seeded Manhattan Jaspers coasted to a 60-42 victory over the seventh-seeded Fairfield Stags in the semifinals of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Tournament at the MassMutual Center.

Michael Alvarado netted 13 points for Manhattan (14-17), which will take on the fourth-seeded Iona Gaels in the championship game on Monday night.
