Manhattan College 1 hr ·
What’s a Jasper, you ask? According to FOX Sports’ college basketball team nickname bracket — we’re a 13 seed in the Strange & Quirky region! You have until Sunday at 3 p.m. to vote and keep us alive against the Billikens. GO JASPERS!
No. 13 Jaspers vs. No. 4 Billikens
Manhattan’s Jaspers honor one of the school’s most prominent figures — Brother Jasper of Mary, F.S.C. Brother Jasper was pretty much the Nick Saban of the 19th century Manhattan extracurricular scene. He founded the school’s first band and glee club, coached the baseball team and became the school’s first athletic director.
[JR: Very important since we are again the underdog to a much larger school!]
