Canisius

The Canisius men’s basketball team will travel to play an exhibition game at Colgate on Wednesday, Nov. 1 to support hurricane relief and the One America Appeal, head coach Reggie Witherspoon announced Friday. Tipoff in Hamilton, N.Y., is set for 7:30 p.m.

The Golden Griffins, who were picked ninth in the MAAC Preseason Coaches Poll released Tuesday, return two starters and seven letter-winners from last year’s team that went 18-16 overall and earned a berth into the 2017 CIT. Canisius is the only team in the MAAC to return two All-MAAC honorees from a season ago (Jermaine Crumpton and Malik Johnson), with Crumpton starting the upcoming season as a Preseason All-MAAC First Team selection.

Colgate returns all five starters and 13 letter-winners from last year’s squad that went 10-22 overall and 8-10 in Patriot League play. The Raiders, who were picked fifth in the Patriot League’s official preseason poll, return 93 percent of their scoring from a season ago.

The Griffs will officially start the 2017-18 campaign Saturday, Nov. 11 when the team travels to play at cross-town rival Buffalo. The Blue and Gold will open the home portion of its 2017-18 slate Saturday, Nov. 18, when the team hosts Youngstown State.

To reserve season tickets, fans should call the Canisius ticket office at (716) 888-TIXX, or purchase online at GoGriffs.com.
