George Beamon scored 26 points and Michael Alvarado 20 added as Manhattan won its seventh straight road contest in an 86-68 victory over South Carolina Tuesday night.
The teams kept things close the opening 13 minutes with neither holding more than a six-point advantage.
The Jaspers (8-2) trailed for the final time with a little over seven minutes remaining in the half but closed with a 17-6 run to take a 45-34 lead at halftime.
Donovan Kates ignited the run with two free throws and the Jaspers were perfect on 12 free throws during that stretch. The only two field goals were a three-pointer from Shane Richards and a dunk by Alvarado. Manhattan was 18 of 19 from the line in the first half.
South Carolina (2-4) closed within five points twice in the second half but could never get any closer.
Sindarius Thornwell led the Gamecocks with 17 points.
