Manhattan falls in basketball season opener

Manhattan College kicked off its basketball season on the road over the weekend, but failed to bring its first win back to The Bronx.

The Jaspers, who were the most improved team in college basketball last year, were no match for the No. 2 seed in the nation, the Louisville Cardinals.

Kentucky took an early lead as the Jaspers went without injured leading scorer George Beamon. The game ended 79-51.
