Julius Coles scored 18 points and Greg Logins had 17 as the Canisius Golden Griffins downed the Marist Red Foxes 75-60 in Metro-Atlantic Athletic Conference action at the Koessler Athletic Center, Friday night.
It’s been 34 years since the Duquesne Dukes last punched a ticket to the NCAA tournament. Ron Everhart’s gang is doing everything it can to bring that streak to an end.
A glance at some of the interesting tilts on this week’s college basketball slate. Things could get all the more intriguing depending upon the pending snowstorm.
Six of the previous week’s top 25 (Ohio State, Texas, Kansas, Notre Dame, Kentucky and Utah State) went unscathed in the last seven days. Here is the carnage.
Holloway finished 7 of 15 from the field including 2 of 3 from behind the arc and an eye-popping 17 of 17 from the free throw line.
A friendly bet gone bad, or good depending upon one’s perspective, left Gaby Belardo with a more aerodynamic appearance.
Julius Coles led a quartet of Griffins in double figures, Greg Logins registered a double-double and Elton Frazier added to his highlight reel as Canisius defeated cross-town Niagara Purple Eagles 69-54 in Metro-Atlantic Athletic Conference action at the Koessler Athletic Center.
The Griffs have an advantage in size and experience that will decide this game. Logins is coming off a career-high 30-point performance over Iona. Logins, Frazier, Vazquez-Simmons and freshman, Chris Manhertz will be too much for the Purple Eagles…
It will be interesting to see if this trend continues as teams get deeper and deeper into conference play. When March comes, usually the teams that can rebound and score around the basket survive the longest.
Haven’t the Panthers been at the place in the recent past: middle to late January with a bunch of impressive wins to their credit only to fall short of expectations in March.
