Freshman, Joshua Been's torrid start to the season continued as he corralled 11 rebounds and added 12 points to help lead the ASA Manhattan Mad Titans to their second victory of the season over the Touro Tornadoes tonight at Infinity Gym by a score of 81-44.
The first half started out even for both teams as they traded baskets. With ASA Manhattan encountering a 3-2 zone for the second consecutive game the Mad Titans were patient and moved the ball finding the open shots and converting. Salim Fofana led the attack with 6 assists with some dazzling first half dishes for buckets. All twelve Mad Titans participated in the first half and were led by Been's 10 first half points. The Mad Titans began to find their groove against the zone and ended the half up 16 at 39-23.
The second half started with the Mad Titans extending their lead and never allowing the Tornadoes to feel comfortable offensively or defensively. Justin Wilson finished the game with 12 points and 4 steals while shooting a perfect 100% from the field. Five other players, including, Fofana, Randy Bautista, Joseph Hicks, Tawaun Bryan, and Isiah Ruiz all finished with 7 points or higher respectively.
Up next for the Mad Titans is a return to NJCAA Region 15 play as they travel to the Bronx to face the Hostos Caimans this Sunday (11/24) at 3pm.
