Rivalries[edit]

Manhattan College vs. Fordham University

The Jaspers' main rivals are the Iona Gaels. They also enjoy a strong rivalry with the cross-borough Fordham Rams, who they have played every season since the 1922-1923 season. Although the Rams left the MAAC for the Atlantic 10 Conference in 1990, the "Battle of the Bronx" is still played every December. Most recently, the Jaspers won 71-57 over the Rams at Barclays Center on December 22, 2014.[2]

Manhattan leads the all-time series (56-52) as of 2015.
