Griffs needed to win this game in regulation.

That was a tough one. Not their best defensive effort for sure. Stretches where Brown scored at will and you can't let a guy - a sophomore guy - score 31 in your building. What the hell happened to Faulkner after being a ball of fire in the first ten + minutes?

Battled back from 10 point deficits multiple times in the second half and I really thought when Malik hit the 3 near the end of regulation that it was over. But then they gave up an easy bucket to tie it. Inexcusable.

Terrible call against Molson in OT and obviously RW was livid but there were so many other things they could have done to win this game.

So now it's MAAC play only and thank God they are in the MAAC. Not sure how many other conferences they would still have a chance to win. This team has some deficiencies.

Griffs build a small lead, allow the other team to get back into the game by half time. After half time we've gone cold for an average of at least 4-5 minutes, the other team now has built a lead of almost double digits. We now start to play some D, take better shots and either tie or take the lead only to get cold again when it comes to shooting.

It's the same thing almost every game. Our teams don't play to win and know how to close games out in regular season and then we panic / choke in the MAAC Tourney.

Don't spend anymore money on team chemistry classes, instead recruit players who have the DNA to get it done every game.

The MAAC may be weak but we've been exposed on how to beat us on a regular basis. Rider, Iona, Quinny & Fairfield, wake up Griffs this could be a very tough week unless you get you act together.

We as fans deserve better!

With 10 seconds left in regulation and winning by 2 points, Hitchon let his man drive to the basket uncontested for a tying layup! Did he think we were ahead by 3 points? Don’t even want to talk about the overtime fiasco.

Thoughout the game Canisius was very weak on there inside "D"It wasn't that Brown had size,Hitchon,Lotts and White couldn't stop them.Whats with the Giffs junior college transfer Ford is he redshirted or not.

Griffs got killed inside against Brown and many others this year. Our outside shooting is horrible, really miss Foley.My question and problem is, with the new NCAA transfer rule why would a mid-major ever redshirt someone. If Rautins turns out really good he will play his last year at ie Syracuse. If the big guy turns out good he will have many higher level offers to play that 5th yr.Ask UB football how that is working out for them, and football I understand why you would.Get those 2, minutes, except for injury no reason to ever redshirt. Ford is a different story

Could just the opposite be true? A strong 3 or even a 4 star comes to a respected mid-major with a great OOC schedule and gets to play 30+ minutes a game, leads the team to the NCAA, maybe even a win or two in the tournament rather than ride the bench getting only 5-7 minute a game at a power school...such a player would be highly sought after as a transfer with two or three years of eligibility remaining. Of course such a player would want a team with a coach who know how to teach a big man the position!!!!

Crummy luck, but I thought the foul call on Molson in OT was a clear charge.... End of regulation defense was as poor as could be. Zero awareness when Brown had the ball and zero awareness with what to do in the last 2 seconds with the ball.

After a great come back, the Griffs let this one slip away. It was a great game throughout however, and the loss really hurts. Brown is a darn good basketball team, and it wouldn't surprise me to see them at the top of the Ivy. I though that Johnson had a great game, and let's hope he stays hot especially this weekend with Rider and Iona coming in. The Griffs are playing better, and if they can win the home games they will be just fine. Support the team this weekend ,and Go Griffs!!!
