NEW YORK -- Mike Evanovich came off the bench to score 15 points and Fairfield beat Manhattan 74-65 on Monday night.

Anthony Johnson added 14 points and 11 rebounds, Colin Nickerson had 13 points and Derek Needham 12 for the Stags (18-8, 11-5 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference).

The Stags trailed 6-4, and went on a 36-10 run to grab its largest lead, 40-16, after a 3-pointer by Evanovich with 3:37 remaining in the first half. The lead never dipped below 13 points the rest of the way.
