NEW YORK (AP) -- Antoine Pearson scored a career-high 21 points and Manhattan extended its winning streak to six games with an 86-75 victory over Rider on Thursday night.

Guy Ngarndi had a career-high 19 points and Patrick Bouli added 13 points for the Jaspers (9-8, 6-1 Metro Atlantic).

Harris Mansell scored 21 points for the Broncs (10-8, 4-4).

Rider led most of the first half, but the Jaspers scored seven straight points, capped by Bouli's 3-pointer, to take a 32-30 lead. Jason Thompson's jumper at the buzzer evened the score at the break.

The Jaspers took a 37-34 lead on Pearson's 3-pointer early in the second half.

With 6:46 left in regulation, Rider's Barney Anderson was charged with a technical foul and Pearson hit a pair of shots from the line. Then Pearson scored on a layup to give Manhattan a 70-59 lead.

The Jaspers made 19 of 32 shots in the second half after only hitting eight of 24 in the first half.
