It was not a happy Festivus for Drew Stafford and the rest of the Buffalo Sabres.  The 23rd of December, known for the Seinfeld created holiday, saw the Sabres put on a clinic on how not to defend against Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals.

Griffs lock down New Orleans 63-48

  • Posted on December 24, 2009 at 9:57 am

Canisius junior Julius Coles scored 18 points, teammate Elton Frazier added 17 and the Golden Griffins locked down New Orleans to just 30.4 percent from the field in a 63-48 win on the final day of the Southern Miss Christmas Classic in Gulfport, Miss. The win is Canisius’ second straight and improved the team to 6-6 on the year, while the Privateers dropped their sixth straight to fall to 5-8.

The 48 points allowed by Canisius are the fewest in a game since Feb. 8, 1997, when the Blue and Gold defeated Fairfield 91-45 in Buffalo. New Orleans shot just 30.4 percent from the field and turned the ball over 19 times, while the Griffs closed out their southern swing by shooting a season-high 51.1 percent from the floor and out rebounding New Orleans by a 34-26 count.
