Good things come to those who wait, or at least that's what Manhattan is hoping for in 2013-14. Last season, Steve Masiello thought he was going to have a loaded roster. Then, poof! A few key pieces were lost and a difficult nonconference schedule sent the season off the rails. Now everything appears to be back in place for the Jaspers to challenge for their first NCAA tournament berth since 2004, when Bobby Gonzalez roamed the sideline.
