Your Canisius men’s basketball team hosts Quinnipiac Thursday night at 7 p.m. in a contest that will have major implications in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference standings. Both the Griffs and the Bobcats enter this week’s play at 10-4 in league action, two games behind league-leading Iona. Canisius owns a win over Quinnipiac earlier in the season, so a victory on Thursday will give the Griffs the tie-breaker advantage. Manhattan also has a 10-4 league record.
Game time at the KAC is slated for 7 p.m. and only a limited number of reserve seats remain. Canisius will celebrate Petey’s 81st birthday during the game with a massive cake. Water bottles and pennants will also be given to early-arriving fans.
Thursday night and Saturday afternoon will be your final opportunities to watch the Griffs at home this season. Billy Baron was named the national player of the week after scoring 34 points in a win at Niagara and 40 in a triple overtime triumph at Siena.
