THE BRONX - Last season's conference championship seems to be motivating Manhattan College this season. 

The Jaspers have won four of their last five games, and now they're rolling into the MAAC Tournament in Albany as the defending champs. 

Head Coach Steve Masiello has been doing anything he can to keep the team motivated, including unveiling the MAAC trophy from last year so that it's sitting on the sidelines during practices this week. 

The Jaspers are just three wins away from having a second trophy to watch them during practice next year.
