Manhattan's Beamon receives MAAC honor

Manhattan guard George Beamon has been named to the All-MAAC first team, after a splendid junior season.

The 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Roslyn, N.Y., averaged 18.4 points and 5.6 rebounds per game, and led the Jaspers to a 20-11 season and the No. 3 seed in the MAAC tournament. Manhattan will play Siena in the MAAC quarterfinals in Springfield, Mass., on Saturday.

Sophomore point guard Mike Alvarado made the All-MAAC third team, and freshman forward Emmy Andujar made the All-Rookie team.
