Niagara, Canisius continue hoops struggles

  • Posted on January 24, 2010 at 8:33 pm

Visiting Saint Peter’s shot 47.4 percent from 3-point range, and the MAAC’s top defensive unit held Canisius to 30.4 percent from the field, as the Peacocks took down the Golden Griffins 68-55 Sunday afternoon on Hall of Fame Day in the Koessler Athletic Center.  The win was Saint Peter’s fifth straight and improved the team to 12-8 overall and 7-3 in the MAAC, while Canisius slipped to 10-11 overall and 5-5 in league play.

Four Canisius players scored in double figures in the losing effort, led by senior Frank Turner and his game-high 18 points. Junior Elton Frazier was credited with 12 points and eight rebounds in the loss, while fellow junior Greg Logins was credited with a double-double after he came off the bench to score 11 points to go with 10 rebounds. Julius Coles posted 11 points as well for Canisius, which shot 30.4 percent from the field, 25 percent from 3-point range and 69.6 percent from the free-throw line.

Sabres fall apart in third period of San Jose loss

  • Posted on January 24, 2010 at 1:09 pm

Perhaps the Buffalo Sabres are getting a little homesick and worn down.  After playing the San Jose Sharks, the NHL’s best steam tooth and nail for two periods Saturday night, the Sharks showed over the final 20 minutes why they occupy the league’s top spot as they skated off with a 5-2 victory.

After Buffalo went into the second intermission tied 2-2 the Sharks scored three goals in the final period.

The line of Tim Connolly, Jason Pominville and Jochen Hecht continued to be red hot, accounting for both Buffalo goals.  Connolly got the scoring goal in the first period as Buffalo outshot the Sharks 14-5 but could only take the one-goal lead into the locker room.

Bandits off to worst start ever at 0-4

  • Posted on January 24, 2010 at 12:59 pm

The Buffalo Bandits are in unprecedented territory.  After losing 11-7 to the Edmonton Rush Saturday night the Bandits are off to a 0-4 start, something hasn’t happened since their debut season in 1992.

Noticeably absent from tonight’s contest were veterans John Tavares and Roger Vyse.  Tavares is currently day-to-day with a lower body injury and looks to get back in action soon.

“I’m hoping to play next weekend” Tavares told last night. “I have skipped the warm up this week and am feeling good.”

The Bandits are back in action this Saturday, January 30 at the HSBC Arena against the Minnesota Swarm at 7:30 p.m.

Melquan Bolding’s three-pointer with 3.4 seconds left helped Duquesne overcome a career high-tying 29 points from St. Bonaventure sophomore Andrew Nicholson for a dramatic 70-69 win on Saturday night at A.J. Palumbo Center.

Nicholson tallied 20 of his 29 points in the second half, including 20 of 24 during a key stretch in the second half to help the Bonnies erase a 15-point halftime deficit and take a 68-64 lead with 1:13 left in the game.
