Mark L. Baer-US PRESSWIRE

Senior George Beamon scored 29 points and the Manhattan Jaspers defeated the Hofstra Pride, 67-56, Wednesday night in Riverdale, N.Y.

The Manhattan Jaspers picked up their frist win of the season Wednesday night, 67-56 over the Hofstra Pride, behind 29 points from senior George Beamon.

Beamon missed the first two games of the season due to an ankle injury, but returned with a vengeance. He went 10-15 from the field and scored in double figures for the 49th consecutive contest. He made seven of his 10 free throw attempts.

Rhamel Brown (15 points) and Michael Alvarado (12 points) also scored in double digits for the Jaspers.

Taran Buie had 22 points off the bench for Hofstra and shot 10-13 from the free throw line.

Manhattan scored the first eight points of the game and never trailed in its home opener. Hofstra battled back to tie the game early in the second half before a Manhattan run opened the game back up.

The Jaspers are now 1-2 on the season after opening up with losses at Louisville and Harvard. They'll face Dayton Saturday on the road.
