Stony Brook vs. Manhattan

  • Spread: Stony Brook -5
  • Over/Under: 128
  • Time: 7 p.m. ET
  • TV: ESPN+

Stony Brook (5-3) is coming off a 75-61 loss at Delaware on Wednesday. The Seawolves are 4-3 against the spread including 0-1 at home.

Manhattan (3-2) enters this game off a tough 73-64 loss at Rhode Island, but is playing much better than its record would indicate.

The Jaspers are now at full strength, as 6-foot-9 sophomore Warren Williams had a season-high 14 points in just 10 minutes against Rhode Island. Williams has only played three games this season and his presence inside with senior forward Pauly Paulicap (5.2 rpg, 2.0 bpg) makes this Manhattan front line a difficult matchup for any team.
