Canisius officially announced that sophomore Zach Lewis, who led the team with 12.5 ppg this past season, will transfer.
There were 351 Division I basketball teams that started the 2014-15 season back in November. Only 16 will still be playing after Sunday night. And NJIT will be one of them after knocking off Canisius 78-73 Saturday night in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament quarterfinals before another full house (1.505) at the Fleisher Center in Newark.
Monmouth held off a late surge from Canisius Saturday afternoon to earn a 60-54 win over the Golden Griffins and move on to the MAAC semifinals Sunday afternoon. Justin Robinson proved his worth as an all-MAAC first team member, leading four Hawks in double figures with 16 points.
Monmouth used a 16 point game from sophomore Justin Robinson to carry themselves into the MAAC semifinals on Sunday against Iona. Check out the photo gallery from the Hawks victory over Canisius.
The MAAC announced its All-Conference teams as well as All-Rookie team during the final coaches conference call of the season on Monday afternoon.
With one more home game looming later this week against Siena, Quinnipiac used their weekend game against Canisius as an opportunity to honor their 10 senior players and staff.
This is a quick wrap up of some things I’ve been meaning to write about from around the MAAC, since I haven’t gotten a chance to because Vincent and Ryan Restivo have been killing it on the beat. For more of their work check out the MAAC page.
Iona maintained their lead over Rider in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play and the Gaels will have three games this week to add some distance. Even without A.J. English and Desi Washington for a game, both Iona and Saint Peter’s pulled off victories.
Canisius has been dealt a tough blow for the final few weeks of conference play.
Phil Valenti’s career at Canisius could not have veered off course any more at the start.
