Game 22: Manhattan (5-14, 3-6) at Rider (11-10, 6-3)

Who: Manhattan (5-14, 3-6) at Rider (11-10, 6-3).

When: 4 p.m., Sunday, Alumni Gymnasium, 107.7 FM The Bronc.

Last time out: Rider lost to Canisius, 67-50; Manhattan lost to Loyola, 51-41.

Previous meeting: Rider won 69-60.

Background: The Broncs look for a bounce back performance following a disappointing performance Friday night in the loss to Canisius in which they had their five-game win streak snapped.

Coach Kevin Baggett will look for Danny Stewart to duplicate his performance in the first meeting between these two on Jan. 10. In that game, Stewart scored 22 points and pulled down a career-high 16 rebounds.

The junior forward is coming off a six-point, two rebound contest against Canisius.

Anthony Myles also had a double-double, finishing with 13 points and 14 boards.

The Jaspers are still missing leading scorer George Beamon, who is out indefinitely and unlikely to return this season.

Point guard Michael Alvarado did not play in the first meeting, but has since returned from an ankle injury of his own. He played 27 minutes off the bench in Friday’s loss to Loyola.

Manhattan has lost three straight and five of its last six.

Also on the MAAC schedule Sunday: Iona (13-7, 7-2) at Loyola (15-6, 7-2), noon; Siena (4-16, 2-7) at Marist (5-15, 2-7), 2 p.m.; Fairfield (11-10, 3-6) at St. Peter’s (6-13, 1-8), 2 p.m.; Niagara (12-8, 8-1) at Canisius (13-7, 6-3), 4 p.m.

Projected starting lineups: Rider: G-Jon Thompson (Sr. 10.7 ppg), G-Anthony Myles (Jr. 12.2 ppg), G- Tommy Pereira (Jr. 4.9 ppg), F-Danny Stewart (Jr. 11 ppg), C-Dera Nd-Ezuma (Sr. 2.3 ppg).
Manhattan: RaShawn Stores (Fr. 5.1 ppg), G-Mohamed Koita, (Sr.), F-Shane Richards (Fr. 6.8 ppg), F-Roberto Colonette (Gr. 3.3 ppg), C-Rhamel Brown (Jr. 11.5 ppg).
