NEW YORK -- Manhattan's Shane Richards was the only player in double figures as the Jaspers edged Fairfield 34-31 Friday night in the second-lowest combined scoring game since the 3-point line was instituted in 1986.
The record is 62 points -Princeton 41-21 over Monmouth (N.J.) on Dec. 14, 2005.
The game broke the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference record for fewest combined points (Saint Peter's defeated Manhattan 44-36 on Feb. 23, 1982).
Manhattan (12-16, 9-8), which has won seven of its last nine, trailed 19-18 at halftime in the game between the league's top defensive teams.
RaShawn Stores' 3-pointer with 1:27 left pushed the Jaspers ahead 32-31.
Fairfield shot 26.7 percent (12 of 45); Manhattan 25.5 percent (12 of 47).
Richards scored 11 points while Rhamel Brown blocked five shots to set Manhattan's single-season record with 87.
Marcus Gilbert's nine points led the Stags (17-13, 9-8), who also lost to Manhattan 62-40 Feb. 12.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
