What to Know

Get ready for an MAAC battle as the Fairfield Stags and the Manhattan Jaspers will face off at 7 p.m. ET Thursday at Draddy Gymnasium. The teams split their matchups last year, with Manhattan winning the first 74-67 on the road and Fairfield taking the second 66-62.

The Stags netted a 63-56 victory over the Evansville Aces on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Manhattan escaped with a win on Saturday against the Army West Point Black Knights by the margin of a single free throw, 72-71.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Fairfield is expected to win a tight contest. They are currently three-for-three against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

The wins brought Fairfield up to 2-5 and the Jaspers to 2-3. With back-to-back wins few and far between for both teams -- they're both 0-1 after winning this season -- a win will be a boon for either squad.
