Manhattan Men’s Basketball Trio Honored with All-Met Honors

Manhattan College seniors George Beamon and Rhamel Brown earned All-Metropolitan Area honors, the Met Basketball Writers Association announced on Tuesday, April 22. Beamon was a first-team selection, while Brown earned a spot on the second team. Beamon is the first Jasper to earn first-team All-Met honors since Peter Mulligan in 2005.Steve Masiello gained the Peter A. Carlesimo Coach of the Year award for the second time. He was the Metropolitan Area Co-Coach of the Year in 2012, his first season at Manhattan College.

Beamon had a remarkable senior season, helping lead the Jaspers to the 2014 MAAC championship and an NCAA Tournament appearance, in which Manhattan led Louisville, the defending national champions, with two minutes left before the Cardinals pulled out a 71-64 win.

Beamon averaged a team-leading 18.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game in helping the Jaspers reach 25 wins during the 2013-14 season. The 25 wins are the second most in program history, one behind the 1994-95 team that won 26 games. Beamon finished his career with 1,843 points, which ranks fourth in Manhattan College’s program history. He also ranks third all-time in steals (162) and 10th in three-point field goals made (123).

The Roslyn, N.Y. native scored 20+ points in 17 games this season, including two games in which he scored more than 30 points. He totaled five double-doubles this season and finished the season ranked among the top 10 rebounders in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. Beamon was a first team All-MAAC selection for the second time in his career and earned first team all-district honors from the National Association of Basketball Coaches.

Brown earned a spot on the Lefty Driesell Defensive All-America team, earning a place as one of the top 25 defensive players in Division I college basketball. Brown finished a spectacular senior season, averaging 10.1 points, 5.9 rebounds and 3.6 blocked shots per game, which ranked third in the nation.

The Brooklyn native garnered second team All-MAAC honors after the season and was named to the all-district second team by the National Association of Basketball Coaches. He was part of a Manhattan defense that limited opponents to 40.9 percent shooting from the field during the 2013-14 season.
