Canisius takes Manhattan
Overtime victory puts Griffs in semis
ALBANY – A 12-point deficit early in the second half didn’t deter the Canisius men’s basketball team. Instead, it motivated the Golden Griffins in the final minutes of a 69-65 overtime win against Manhattan in a MAAC Tournament quarterfinal Friday at the Times Union Center.
The Griffs shot precisely in the second half, from the floor and at the free-throw line, and held Manhattan to seven successful shots from the floor in the half.
