The Stony Brook men’s basketball team will host the Manhattan Jaspers in an ESPN BrackBusters game on Feb. 19, but the game will not appear on the ESPN family of networks, according to the schedule released by ESPNU on Monday.

The BracketBusters event is a flex game that is scheduled to match up possible NCAA tournament contenders. The Seawolves, far off the pace at 4-5 in conference play including a 69-59 win over the University of Maryland, Baltimore County on Monday night, did not make the top 11 matchups that will be on television.

Vermont, in second place in the America East with an 8-2 record, will play the College of Charleston on ESPNU.

Manhattan (3-18, 1-9 in MAAC play) is in last place in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.  It will be the first meeting between the two schools.
