Taylor hits game-winner to send Rider to quarterfinal round

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Jimmie Taylor scored 16 points and drilled the game-winning 3-pointer and Rider survived to eliminate Manhattan 69-68 in the first round of the MAAC Tournament on Thursday night.

The Broncs (18-14) will now play No. 3 seeded Iona in quarterfinal action on Saturday.

Rider held a 55-45 lead with 8:18 left to play. But Manhattan stormed back with a 19-7 stretch to grab a two-point lead (64-62) on a Calvin Crawford 3 with 3:10 remaining. The game went back-and-forth the rest of the way. Aaron Walker Jr. appeared to seal it with a layup for the Jaspers, giving them a 68-66 lead with 18 seconds left. However Taylor had the final answer, drilling a 3 with four seconds left.
