Manhattan HC Steve Masiello: 'This generation is a fraudulent generation'

Manhattan was beaten by Siena 81-68 Sunday evening, prompting head coach Steve Masiello to spout off about his team's inability to face adversity, as relayed by Sam Blum of The Saratogian News:

We're a fraudulent society top to bottom. Our society is fraudulent. Everything about our society is edited. Everything about our society is pre-arranged, So this generation is a fraudulent generation.

What I mean by that is they put their Instagram picture up the way they want. They put their tweet out the way they want. Nothing is interactive or real. So when things don't go the way people want them to - people will struggle with when it's not 70 degrees and sun and the stars aren't exactly aligned and it's not exactly 4 p.m., and they didn't get exactly eight hours of beauty sleep. Young people today struggle with that. Our society struggles with that. For me, I can't speak for other coaches. I see it more than ever when adversity comes in, people struggle.

They're not bad kids. This might be one of my favorite groups I've ever had. They struggle with adversity, and that's a byproduct of our society today. I think we are a reflection of our culture today. Not to get too deep.

The Jaspers shot just 37.7 percent from the field and turned the ball over 17 times, while dropping their third straight game.
