Jaspers’ freshman point guard Michael Alvarado banked in the game winning 3-pointer from 65-feet out to send Manhattan (4-18, 2-9 MAAC) off with a 60-59 victory over Marist (4-19, 3-8 MAAC) on Sunday at the McCann Center.”It always feels good to win,” explained Alvarado. “Fairfield was a tough loss, we should have won that game, but we made up for it today. We all played together and down to the last minute. It is like Coach (Rohrssen) always says, we need to play all 40 minutes and we did that today.”
“With two seconds on the clock I knew I had at least one dribble, maybe two dribbles if I could sneak it in. After that I just let it go and hoped it went in,” said Alvarado.
It was the freshman point guard’s second 3-pointer of the contest. Alvarado finished with six assists and did not commit a turnover in 34 minutes of action.”Michael will probably get a lot of credit for that shot, but one of the other things that impressed me today was that he had six assists and no turnovers, which is a pretty good stat line for a point guard. We are proud of him for that,” said Rohrssen
