The Monmouth University women’s basketball team plays host to Manhattan Sunday at 2 p.m. The Hawks are coming off an 86-77 loss to league-leading Iona, in which Monmouth stormed back to make it a one-possession game with less than two minutes to play after trailing by as many as 24 points. Manhattan fell in overtime to Niagara, 71-67, on Thursday.

SCOUTING THE MANHATTAN JASPERS

Kayla Grimm has chipped in with 9.9 points and 7.1 rebounds per game, but has not played in the last 10 games. Shayna Ericksen has chipped in with 9.9 points and 6.1 rebounds per game, including a 24-point, seven-rebound, five-steal performance against MU on Dec. 31. Allison Skrec has also contributed 8.4 points and a team-best 5.3 assists per game. Nicole Isaacs has added 7.6 points per game so far this season, with all but six of her 45 field goals made coming from long range.

ALL-TIME SERIES VS. MANHATTAN
Monmouth snapped a seven-game losing streak to the Jaspers dating back to the 1988-89 season with a 58-43 victory on Dec. 28, 2012, before the Jaspers defeated MU, 65-59, this past Dec. 31. Manhattan owns an 9-6 advantage in the all-time series.
