Riverdale, NY – Manhattan’s home match-up with Monmouth slated for  Friday, February 10 at 9:00 pm has been flexed to ESPNU and can also be accessed via the WatchESPN platform.
Last year, Jaspers rallied for a thrilling 78-71 win over the eventual MAAC Regular Season Hawks at Draddy Gymnasium. Take a look at the highlights from that victory:

The MAAC telecast schedule will feature 10 netflex games during the 2016-17 season. The netflex format allows ESPN to pick any game on schedule for the selected date to air on the designated platform (ESPN2, ESPNU, or ESPN3). ESPN will announce which game has been selected for the wildcard telecast 21 days out. The format enables the MAAC and ESPN flexibility to showcase the best possible matchups.
