Interviews after Canisius’ 14-point win, which snapped a season-long, four-game losing streak…
Canisius coach Jim Baron
“This is a heck of a win for us,” Baron said.
“We executed. Got the ball inside, made the extra pass. We had 14 assists. We looked for each other and we played with confidence.”
Canisius players Jeremiah Williams and Josiah Heath
The last time Williams scored 20 points was … JUCO. Yeah, JUCO. OK, maybe high school.
Williams’ season-high his second year at Vincennes was 13 points, and Jon Snyder went through the box scores from his freshman year and said his high was 16. Looking like high school was the answer. Good game Sunday, though.
Josiah Heath is averaging a double-double since Phil Valenti was injured.
Saint Peter’s coach John Dunne
“You never wanna say you lost the game in the first eight, nine minutes — you want to be a better, grittier team than that — but at the end of the day, I think if we don’t miss those chippies (easy lay-ups) and keep it even, then it’s a game.”
Sure, John.Follow @NickVeronica
