Manhattan star George Beamon, who averaged just under 20.0 ppg a season ago, will not play in today's game against Louisville because of an injury.
If Steve Masiello and the Manhattan Jaspers come into the KFC Yum Center and stun the second-ranked Louisville Cardinals on Sunday, they'll do so without the services of their best player.
Senior swigman George Beamon (19.0 ppg, 5.6 rpg) will not play in today's season-opener because of an ankle injury.
Beamon has led the Jaspers in scoring in each of the past two seasons, and led the entire Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference in 2011-12. He was also second on the team in rebounding a year ago.
Suffice it to say, this is a major blow for Manhattan.
