The Buffalo News - - SPORTS - By Rachel Lenzi NEWS SPORTS RE­PORTER

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.
