Rise and shine: Rider, Stony Brook tip off at 6 a.m. Tuesday

LAWRENCEVILLE — The early bird gets the worm.

Or in this case, some college basketball at 6 a.m.

Rider welcomes Stony Brook to Alumni Gymnasium Tuesday morning for a feature game in ESPN’s 24-hour Tip-Off Marathon.

“I’m looking forward to our fans,” said coach Kevin Baggett, who won his debut, 79-54, over Robert Morris. “They do an awesome job getting out and making it a white out. Our fans do an awesome job with it. We hope that the people that were here (Friday) mention it to other people and they come out on Tuesday.”

The Broncs will stay off campus in a hotel Monday night to try and get some sleep.

“It’s crazy around campus,” said junior guard Anthony Myles. “They have all kinds of activities around campus and the kids stay up all night. They don’t even go to sleep.”

Rider participated in the 6 a.m. game last season, falling to Drexel, 82-60.

The Seawolves are also no strangers to this early hour. They traveled to Monmouth two years ago for the showcase game.

“I’m definitely looking forward to it,” Myles said. 


No. 2 Louisville 79, Manhattan 51: Jaspers played without George Beamon (foot) and paid the price against the second-ranked team in the nation.

Siena 54, Navy 49 (OT): Good bounce back win on the road for the Saints after dropping a tight season opener. O.D. Anosike had 17 points and 12 rebounds, his second double-double in as many games. 

Washington 85, Loyola 63: Greyhounds only trailed by two at intermission out West, but it got away from them in the second half.
