Bona goes for third straight win vs. Rhode Island

  • Posted on February 27, 2010 at 8:02 am

St. Bonaventure will attempt to complete a perfect three-game week on Saturday when it hosts Rhode Island at the Reilly Center. Fresh off road victories at La Salle and Fordham, the Bonnies will look to put together their first three-game A-10 win streak since the end of the 2001-02 campaign. A win would also give the Bonnies four wins in February for the first time since that same 2001-02 season and equal their A-10 win total from last season. Meanwhile, the Rams haven’t played since Feb. 20 and sit in sixth place in the A-10 at 8-5. Currently in a tie for ninth place, St. Bonaventure has out-rebounded five of its last eight opponents, grabbing 108 rebounds over that span.

Rhode Island has taken four straight and six of the last seven from the Bonnies in the series. The Rams have a 33-22 all-time edge against the Brown and White, including a 14-12 mark on the Bonnies’ home floor. Current URI head coach and former Bona player and coach Jim Baron has been a part of each of the last 29 meetings between the two schools. Baron is 9-3 vs. the Brown and White over his nine years as a Ram and went 8-9 against Rhode Island when guiding the Bonnies. Rhode Island owns the longest win streak in series history at 16 games, dating from 1986-93.

Lewis makes history in NU win over Manhattan

  • Posted on February 27, 2010 at 2:29 am

The Niagara men’s basketball team (17-13, 9-8 MAAC) improved to 5-1 in February with a 74-72 victory over Manhattan (10-18, 4-13 MAAC) on Friday night in Riverdale, N.Y. The victory guaranteed a top-6 finish and that coveted Friday bye in next week’s MAAC Championships for the Purple Eagles.

In the win, senior Tyrone Lewis became the first player in MAAC history to record 1,500 points, 500 rebounds, 200 assists and 200 steals. He needed two rebounds to reach the special feat, and he pulled down his second carom early in the first half to achieve the milestone. The 5-foot-11 guard now has 1,793 points, 503 rebounds, 284 assists and 224 steals in his illustrious career.

  • Posted on February 27, 2010 at 2:25 am

Canisius junior forward Tomas Vazquez-Simmons scored a career-high 18 points, with 15 coming in the second half, and fellow junior Greg Logins chipped in 15 points off the bench as the Golden Griffins defeated Loyola 74-62 in Reitz Arena Friday night in MAAC action. The win improves Canisius to 14-15 overall and 8-9 in league play, while the Greyhounds dropped their fourth-straight overall to slip to 12-16 overall and 5-12 in conference action.

Vazquez-Simmons finished the night by going 6-for-12 from the field, 3-for-6 from 3-point range and 3-for-6 from the line while pulling down 10 rebounds for his sixth career double-double. Logins went 6-for-8 from the floor and was credited with three boards despite missing most of the first half with foul trouble. Elton Frazier and Frank Turner were good for 11 and 10 points respectively in the win, the Griffs’ fourth-straight victory over Loyola, dating back to last year.

Where will Terrell Owens play in 2010?

  • Posted on February 27, 2010 at 12:05 am

Terrell OwensFree agency is under a week away.  The Buffalo Bills aren’t overly concerned about retaining their own because unlike most teams, the Bills don’t have many worth resigning.  On paper Terrell Owens is an exception.

But let’s be real here, folks. By all accounts I’ve heard Owens’ interest in playing for a new team is matched only by Buffalo’s desire to have him move on.  Don’t get me wrong; there are no hard feelings.  Owens did Buffalo a huge favor by signing with the organization.  He generated buzz, helped move season tickets and times even helped on the field.
