RIVERDALE, N.Y. (AP) — Rich Williams scored 16 points and had a career-high eight assists to lead Manhattan to an 80-66 victory over Morgan State on Saturday night.

Martez Cameron scored 16 points to lead Morgan State (4-6), which has lost four straight. LaPri McCray-Pace added 12 points and Antonio Gillespie had 11.

The Jaspers had a double-digit lead midway through the first half and built a 46-32 halftime lead. Gillespie's jumper and 3-pointer pulled the Bears to 58-48 with 10:26 to play but they didn't get closer.

Manhattan shot 54 percent from the field but missed 14 3-pointers and 12 free throws.
