JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) Shane Richards scored 16 points as Manhattan held off Saint Peter's 55-53 in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play Friday night to snap a four-game losing streak.

Richards had 11 points in the second half to help the Jaspers (4-9, 2-1) overcome a six-point deficit.

Manhattan, playing its seventh contest without injured All-MAAC guard George Beamon, pulled ahead 42-41 on Richards' 3-pointer with 9:27 remaining and built its own six-point cushion at 55-49.

After the Peacocks (6-7, 1-2) closed to 55-53 with 2 minutes left, neither team could score. Yvon Raymond missed two free throws with 1:01 left, and Desi Washington had a jumper blocked by Rhamel Brown and missed a 3-pointer with 1 second left.

Richards was 4 of 9 from long range while Manhattan made 9 of 27 3-pointers as a team. Brown added 11 points for his fourth straight double-digit performance.

Washington led Saint Peter's with 15 points.

WATCH: Andre Drummond hilariously misses dunk vs. Wizards

Andre Drummond had a rough afternoon Monday against the Wizards. 

In the first quarter, he got crossed out of his shoes by Bradley Beal for a three. 

Then in the second half, he drove right past Thomas Bryant to get to the rim, only to botch the one-handed slam. 

With Rui Hachimura, Moe Wagner and Anzejs Pasecniks out Monday, Drummond could have been in line for a monster performance. 

Little did he know the Capital One Arena rims were not planning on being kind in this game.

Bradley Beal didn't take long to add to his highlight reel Monday afternoon.

Beal just reminded Pistons' center Andre Drummond that he really shouldn't be out on the perimeter while on defense. 

After crossing up Drummond, Beal hit him with a step-back three and then reminded him that you should really slide your feet on defense. 

Beal is clearly having himself a week after getting engaged to his longtime girlfriend on Sunday.

Hopefully, Drummond learned his lesson.
