The coronavirus pandemic has affected all levels of sports. And even though the MAAC tournament tried to slip through one last tournament in Atlantic City, it just wasn’t fast enough. And before the Manhattan College women’s basketball team could even take the court, their postseason was over. more
It was early afternoon on Thursday and Manhattan head coach Steve Masiello and his Jaspers were still feeling the sting of their season-ending loss to Siena the night before. The Jaspers’ stay in Atlantic City for the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament lasted two days. more
The plan last Friday night for Manhattan was rather simple: Send the Jaspers’ senior class out in style with a victory over Fairfield on Senior Night. That win would, in turn, put the brakes to a late-season skid that had seen Manhattan drop six of its previous seven games. more
Few could have predicted the bounce back season the Manhattan College women’s basketball team is having this year. After all, the program was coming off a disappointing 11-win campaign last season, one marred by injuries and characterized by an over-reliance on young players. more
There is not a whole lot of wiggle room in Richard Gu’s daily schedule. When he’s not making his daily commute to Bronx Science from his Fordham home, he’s busy piecing together a plan of just how to fit Science’s legendary school workload with an equally heavy weekly practice schedule. All while finding some time to sleep. more
It was late in the game. Just a handful of seconds were left until Joel Jimenez’ high school basketball career would be over.

Better days, Schulman said, were on the horizon. Patience was all that was required. more
Sarang West and Carolina Lopez have done a lot of winning in their three seasons at Bronx Science. A lot of winning. The Wolverines’ junior gems have been on the victorious end of 50 of 56 games in their careers, posting a near-flawless 33-1 home record, winning two Bronx A South Division titles.  And, shortly they’ll make their second appearance in the quarterfinal round of the Public School Athletic League playoffs. more
This was not how Manhattan head coach Steve Masiello envisioned last weekend playing out. With a match against first-place St. Peter’s on Friday night followed by a visit from last-place Canisius for a Sunday matinee, the goal for the Jaspers was to sweep the weekend series and make a major move in the standings in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. more
All in all, it was good to be the Lehman Lightning last week. The Lightning’s excellent adventure began with their CUNY Athletic Conference regular-season finale — one that not only honored players Tommy Batista and Angel Nunez on Senior Night, but also gave long-time head coach Steve Schulman the 300th victory of his career after Lehman took care of City College, 73-56. more
