    NEW YORK -- Antoine Pearson's underhanded heave while falling down in the lane with 9.1 seconds left lifted Manhattan over Morgan State 61-60 on Wednesday night.

    Morgan State went ahead 60-58 in a back-and-forth second half when Kevin Thompson scored with 49 seconds remaining. Andrew Gabriel hit a free throw with 21 seconds left to pull Manhattan within one before Pearson's decisive shot.

    Reggie Holmes' 3-point attempt at the buzzer for Morgan State was blocked by Darryl Crawford.

    Chris Smith scored 14 points, Crawford had 12 and Devon Austin 11 for the Jaspers (2-0).

    Holmes and Thompson had 12 points apiece for the Bears (1-2), who led 30-26 at halftime.
