Recap: Manhattan vs. Buffalo

Brooklyn, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - George Beamon notched 22 points, helping the Manhattan Jaspers to an 84-81 overtime victory over the Buffalo Bulls at the Barclays Center.

Beamon shot 8-of-20 from the field for the Jaspers (9-2). RaShawn Stores and Ashton Pankey each contributed 10 points, while Rhamel Brown had eight points, six rebounds, four blocks and two steals.

Javon McCrea recorded a double-double for the Bulls (4-4) with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Shannon Evans put up a team-high 20 points, hitting 13-of-15 at the free-throw line. Joshua Freelove netted 17 points and Xavier Ford added 10 points.

The Bulls were the more consistent offensive squad in the first half, shooting 41.7 percent from the floor and 19-of-21 at the line. The Jaspers shot a mere 28.6 percent from the field and trailed 41-39 at halftime.

Manhattan improved to shoot 40 percent from the field in the second half, not quite as good as Buffalo's 42.9 percent, but the Jaspers were the better team at the stripe, where they shot 12-of-14. With five seconds left in regulation, Shane Richards was fouled attempting a 3-pointer and made all three free throws to tie the game at 77. Following a missed Evans jumper on the other end, the game went to overtime.

In the extra session, a Freelove 3-pointer tied the game at 81 with just under a minute to play, but this was the only field goal the Bulls made in the period. A Rich Williams layup with 18 seconds left proved to be the game- winner.

The Jaspers outscored the Bulls 36-30 in the paint and 22-14 in points off turnovers to win their sixth consecutive game.
