Timon Canisius Buffalo Sports DailyIt was statement time Tuesday night for two of Western New York’s best high school basketball teams as fourth-ranked Canisius traveled to fifth-ranked Timon in a key Monsignor Martin Association match up.

In what goes down as in instant classic, Aaron Nevins went coast to coast for a layup to beat the buzzer in giving Canisius a breathtaking win 78-77 overtime victory.

Timon, down 20 at halftime, wrestled the lead with eight seconds left in overtime when Kyle Mackowiak took a perfect pass from Dut Dour for an uncontested layup.

Jim Kelly appreciates you; vows to do his part

  • Posted on January 12, 2010 at 9:31 am

There’s no meeting in the middle when it comes to the Bill Cowher billboard erected Monday by this site thanks to the donations of hungry Buffalo Bills fans.  Either you love the idea, or you hate it. Trust me I’ve gotten numerous emails stating both.  Very few people don’t have a strong opinion one way or the other.

One person that can be chalked up to supporting the plan is Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly.  Kelly, speaking to WIVB claimed what most already know; for better or worse Buffalo Bills fans are a dedicated bunch and will do whatever necessary on their end to bring a winner to Western New York.

“These are Bills fans. They’ll do whatever it takes. It doesn’t matter. God bless ‘em. And I understand the money over what it cost the billboard will go to Hunter’s Hope, so great job guys,” said Kelly.

Six young Buffalo Bills with significant upside

  • Posted on January 12, 2010 at 8:34 am

Leodis McKelvin Buffalo Sports DailyAs we continue to wait for news to break regarding the Buffalo Bills’ search for a new head coach, we thought it’d be prudent to break away from the repetitive coverage and start talking about the shell of a football team that’s on the verge of getting re-molded.

One of the key sticking points that’s often bandied about when talking about top coaching candidates’ unwillingness to come to Buffalo is their overall lack of talent. This is a valid concern, even if it’s hyperbolized in Buffalo to an extent. Let’s face it - Seattle isn’t exactly brimming with untapped potential, either. While it’s true that Buffalo does lack young, potentially elite talent in key positions, namely quarterback, there are young players on this team with the ability to turn into star players at their respective positions.

Niagara drops road contest in OT

  • Posted on January 12, 2010 at 8:24 am

Senior Tyrone Lewis (Levittown, Pa.) again produced late-game heroics in a double-overtime contest, but the Niagara men’s basketball team (10-8, 3-3 MAAC) dropped a 90-86 road contest at Saint Peter’s (8-8, 3-3 MAAC) on Monday.

Lewis beat the buzzer at the end of regulation with a 3-pointer in front of the NU bench to knot the score at 64-64 and send the game into the first overtime. With 16 seconds remaining in the extra session, Lewis again sank a contested triple from the same spot, tying the score at 74-74, forcing a second bonus period.

Saint Peter’s Nick Leon, who finished with a game-high 29 points, scored the Peacocks’ final six points to claim the victory. His backcourt mate Wesley Jenkins added 27 points.
