THE BRONX - The Manhattan College Jaspers took home Division I bragging rights with a win in the annual Battle of the Bronx women's basketball match versus the Fordham Rams Sunday.

Gabrielle Cottrell led the Jaspers to victory, scoring a game-high 18 points. Cottrell hit a three-pointer and two free throws in the waning minutes to seal the victory for the Jaspers.

Manhattan improved its record to 1-1 with the win. The season-opening loss gives Fordham an 0-1 start.
