A new day meant another new opportunity for the Manchester University men’s basketball team. Manchester wrapped up its regular-season schedule with a 69-61 road victory at Franklin College on Saturday, Feb. 20.

A day after Franklin topped the Spartans 88-76 in Stauffer-Wolfe Arena on the strength of 56.1 percent shooting, the Black and Gold clamped down defensively and limited FC to just 36.7 percent (22-60) shooting in Saturday’s contest. Manchester also held the Grizzlies to just 20 percent (4-20) shooting from the three-point territory on their home floor.
