Manhattan's George Beamon Out Against Harvard, Doubtful for Hofstra

Mark L. Baer-US PRESSWIRE

I took a little bit of guff for not selecting George Beamon to my list of the top 50 players in the mid-major ranks. Right now, he would have to play at least a game before I would have any reason to doubt that choice.

Beamon missed the Jaspers' opening loss to Louisville because of an ankle sprain suffered in practice.

He will now miss Friday's game against Harvard and is doubtful for next week's game against Hofstra, according to a report from the New York Daily News' Sean Brennan.

The wing was a 5.7 HW30 player last season, while averaging 19 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. His presence is desperately needed for Manhattan to contend at the top of the MAAC, although in the opener against the Cardinals, junior Michael Alvarado acquitted himself well from a scoring standpoint, and Rhamel Brown (1.9 HW30 last year) played well inside.

Beamon though provides that anchoring scorer in the offense, and just adds to the weapons that the Jaspers will need to contend with Loyola.
