Key Games

2/15 vs VMI

Having met thirteen times in history and six this past decade, VMI edged Manhattan with an 11-10 victory last season. The Keydets went on a 5-1 run in the fourth to secure the comeback win. The Jaspers will be looking to get back in the win column against the Keydets this season. 

2/22 @ Wagner

The Jaspers lead the all-time series against the Seahawks 9-2, but the two have split each of their past four meetings, including a triple-overtime win for Manhattan in 2017. Last season, Manhattan edged Wagner 11-10 in a season-opening victory. 

3/14 @ Canisius 

One of the Jaspers’ two MAAC wins last season- and since 2016- came against the Canisius Golden Griffins in a 7-6 upset victory. Manhattan will be looking to take down the Golden Griffins once again this season. Canisius leads the all-time series 15-2 with Manhattan’s only two wins coming in 2019 and 2001. 

4/4 @ St. Bonaventure 

Manhattan’s first MAAC win last season- and since 2016- came against the first-year Bonnies, winning 15-12. This contest will likely be Manhattan’s easiest conference game again this season with St. Bonaventure just in their second year as a program.
