Interviews after Canisius’ 60-59 OT win over Stony Brook:
Canisius’ Jeremiah Williams and Jamal Reynolds
Jeremiah Williams hit a jumper with nine seconds left in overtime to give Canisius a 60-59 win over Stony Brook.
“It was a big-time shot, of course,” Williams said. “The guy, he was playing off of me and I didn’t just want to pull up right away. I knew I could take him … and I pulled up. I work on that every day in practice.”
Jamal Reynolds had a career-high 17 rebounds and added 11 points for his first career double-double.
Canisius coach Jim Baron
“We knew that this was going to be a hard-fought game,” Jim Baron famously opened.
He’s is much more willing to make jokes after wins.
“Jeremiah hit the shot,” he said. “When you make shots, you become a good coach.”
Baron also had high praise for Reynolds.
“I think Jamal getting 17 rebounds was phenomenal,” Baron said. “Thats the one thing he does better than anybody I’ve coached in a long time.”
Stony Brook coach Steve Pikiell
“All year long I saw the tapes of them. They’ve been a good defensive team all year long,” Pikiell said. “They’re terrific help defenders, they pressure the ball, force turnovers.”
