Quite a start. The women were edged by 42 points at home by UB. Going to be a very long season for them. And the men are picked to finish near the bottom of the MAAC. What a mess Canisius basketball has become!

Sad but true. The numbers do not lie. After reading the article in the News yesterday, it would appear that if the women lose by a reasonable number of points this year, it will be considered almost like a win. It is hard to read the men’s team, but the so called experts are not giving them much respect. Life without Malik Johnson has arrived.

Yeah, rough one - but hopefully they can steal a few wins this year.

As to the women Griffs let's hope Scott Hemmer, a very well regarded D-III coach, becomes what another well regarded D-III coach has become to UB football.3 Juniors, a sophomore and a freshman started and played way more minutes than the two Seniors and two Sophomores who came off the bench. Only 11 on the team- 5 Sophomores and 1 Freshman, including Dominique Doss. Is she still recovering from her knee injury? The women like the men, have 13 scholarships, right? In fact are there more under Title IX? I hope our roster is at 11 only because Scott is looking for the right recruits, not because not enough right recruits are not interested. As I've expressed in other posts IMO CC as a whole has been in a funk for a few years now. Covid certainly isn't helping this year and I'm not blaming the administration. But some changes, people or otherwise, by addition , not subtraction are needed soon I.M.O. Now back to basketball.

how do you think they can get out of this funk?

it has to be about more than money. What I would give for Canisius to have a basketball reputation of other Jesuit institutions like Georgetown, Xavier and Gonzaga

Coach Hemer has to find a way to bring in better talent. Unfortunately the present group, in my opinion will be lucky if they win 2 or 3 games this year. Let's hope he is successful. Go Griffs!!!!

Back to my other ranting. The niece, who has appeared in some of my earlier contributions to Griff,just e-mailed a little while ago to Mrs.BfloGriff that she just received her acceptance letter to become a frosh Griff in the fall.Apparently the scholarship/aid package offer will follow later. Her Griffin uncle would be very happy if she came to CC. The aid package comment is not in jest, because wherever she goes she will need student aid, with the probable exception of SUNY Almost-in-Lockport,where she can go for free if she signs up for what ever the requirements are for after she graduates. IMO any of the other four schools she's visited so far are better suited for her (CC Included) because they are better suited for her with a smaller, more personal, environment. The three out-of- the- area schools she's visited so far ain't cheap. Student aid or scholarship assistance will be necessary at any of the four smaller schools. Canisius would be well advised to offer her a full ride room, board and books included, even though sports aren't her thing. Her Uncle thinks shes full ride material (academic) wherever she applies. He believes her teachers do too. But staying close to family while living the on campus experience might be the winner, as she prepares for graduate school. I don't think any of the Powers That Be at my Alma Mater know who my niece is. This text is not bait for a scholarship or other aid. Wherever she goes to college, they will be getting a future Alumna who will be a star in her chosen major and in her chosen profession. She's the kind of kid The College needs to stock up on right now. "Kid" is affectionate, she's a wonderful young lady. Go Griffs.

DI women's teams can have a maximum of 15 scholarship players. That's about four too many, but they get two more than the men (who also could get by with 11 instead of 13) to help offset football's 85 (FBS) or 63 (FCS) scholarship limit.
