Manhattan has also been to the NIT 18 times in their long basketball history. The Jaspers have made it to the quarterfinals six times and reached the semifinals in 1953. In 2012, they went to the CIT and advanced to the second round.
The Jaspers play their home games at Draddy Gym, which opened in 1979. Draddy Gym is in the Bronx and it seats over 2300 fans for Jaspers games. With 2300 seats, you know you are guaranteed a great view of the court. You will enjoy a great college basketball game with your favorite concession items such as sandwiches, fruit, pretzels and Coke products. You can hardly beat the neighborhood for pregame and postgame, after all you are in “The City That Never Sleeps.” The fans are passionate about the Jaspers, but not so rowdy that you should feel you might not want to take the kids.
The Jaspers play in the MAAC with teams such as Canisius, Fairfield, Iona, Marist, Monmouth, Niagara, Quinnipiac, Rider, St. Peter’s and Siena. With these great games, you are sure to be entertained when you bring the kids to a Jaspers game.
