Our final handful of observations and nuggets of note from what turned out to be Manhattan's season finale, a 74-64 loss to Hampton in the NCAA Tournament:
- "We didn't play Manhattan basketball."
- Getting to the free throw line aided Hampton immensely.
- Manhattan's seniors went out swinging.
- By the same token, the future looks bright in Riverdale.
- Win or lose, Steve Masiello acquitted himself well this season.
