Jesse KramerCorrespondent INovember 27, 2009

On Saturday night, Manhattan will tip-off against Fordham at 7:00 PM. 

This will mark the 102nd Battle Of The Bronx between the Fordham Rams and the Manhattan Jaspers. The historic series is almost even with wins on both sides. This year, the event will be hosted at Draddy Gymnasium, the home of the Jaspers.

Manhattan (3-2) is coming off a 69-62 win at American on Wednesday night. The Jaspers have played well in their last two games and look to continue tomorrow night.

Forham (1-3) are coming off an eight point loss at Hartford. Fordham has continued to struggle all season and has hopes of turning things around at Draddy.

With Manhattan's players heating up as of recently, they will be able to overcome the force of Fordham point guard Jio Fontan and come up with a victory.

Key To A Manhattan Win

The Jaspers will have to continue to move a lot on offense, rather than stand around for 25 seconds and wait for a three pointer. With Manhattan's lively offense, more shots open up for guards on the perimeter and big-men in the post.
