MAAC tournament loss fuels Jaspers' motivation

THE BRONX - The Manhattan Jaspers are looking to a successful upcoming basketball season and using their disappointing MAAC tournament performance last year as fuel to their motivation.

Head coach Steve Masiello has worked his players all summer after taking over before last season and leading the team to 21 wins, a 15-game improvement from the previous season.

Masiello says the team is coming back strong with some key players and a chip on their shoulder.
