Postgame interviews: Canisius 71, Niagara 65

By Nick Veronica

Both Canisius players and coach Jim Baron sent well-wishes to Chris Manhertz and discussed the deeper meaning of Canisius’ 71-65 victory over Niagara, which gave Canisius its first season sweep in the series since the 1994-95 season.

Niagara’s press conference was quiet. Niagara led most of the game but lost the lead late, and Antoine Mason said there was no time he really felt the game slip away.
