Manhattan Star George Beamon Out For Louisville Game

New, comments

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.

Mark L. Baer-US PRESSWIRE

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.
