when you can't score and you don't play defense. Even with all hands on deck today, just over matched in every phase.

I saw NO improvement from Hitchon or White. Harried looked good but only saw 17 minutes. Why did Majesty sit so long? Ahmed hasn’t seen action yet this year, but started and saw too many minutes in my opinion. Reggie’s decisions on playing time have always puzzled me.

Yeah I don't get the sit Majesty for 7-8 minutes in the second half philosophy. Second game in a row. Obviously doesn't work.

Hitchon does some great things from time to time but continues to be inconsistent and still can't guard the post.

White was really laboring. I guess the injury is more than originally thought.

I expected a lot more from Akrum. Doesn't present any type of scoring threat.

Henderson needs to be much more consistent.

Same with Harried but I still think he needs to play more.

Even though Fofana's shooting percentage was awful today, he at least is starting to look like he fits in a bit at this level. Beyah is completely lost. George isn't much better - but at least Beyah is a freshman. Brooks looks like a former football player walk-on playing D1 basketball. Siem looked a bit more athletic and capable today compared to the Marist games but that's about equivalent to being named the world's tallest midget. I don't ever remember a less inspiring recruiting class. Anyone?

Can you say sophomore slump? Jacco is the poster boy. What in the world is going on with him?

Malek is limited in some areas but plays hard. The best so far through 3 games.

Thank God we are not playing Bona or UB this year. Those games would be ugly. We are terrible.

Canisius falls to Monmouth 84-66 to fall to 1-2. It was ugly. Monmouth took total control late first half and didn’t look back. Griffs shot just 33.8% for the game.

Terrible display by a disorganized, leaderless team. Looks like a YMCA pickup squad, launching wayward 3’s without any adding game. No one is close to a decent PG and the new guys are overmatched except for Green.

Forana can’t hit anything and creates notjhing (2 for 14 in 3’s this season. Amazing that our coaches are so inept. We are fortunate that we
Don’t have to watch this mess in person.

Honestly. Have any of our players improved significantly since coming to Canisius? They hit a wall because the coaching just isn’t there. Time for a major overhaul. Please.

Is this team actually coached?! It just looked like one big mess out there yesterday. How about running some plays?!

We got our clocks cleaned and the same thing will probably happen again today.

Reggie’s post game comments included how they have been working on their passing. You could have fooled me!

The men’s team may be as bad as the women. How far Canisius basketball has fallen.

This sounds like a single digit win season. But that's consistent with the huge cloud that has been hanging over CC, IMO,since before the time of Covid-19.I'm afraid the coaching staff has packed it in and is planning Reggie's retirement party and job searches. Really, the whole College needs a kick in the butt and a transfusion of serious dollars. On the BfloGriff bright side, CC has stepped up with a scholarship offer to the niece, but so has its Jesuit rival at JCU and as has Mercyhurst U. More are likely on the way, hopefully including one from what appears to have become her dream school. If she doesn't pick CC, at least she's not an athlete.Unless you consider ballet dancers,which she is, athletes (which BfloGriff does). As it happens Mercyhurst has a dance program, as does the dream school. She could do a science/math major at either school,with some dance courses along the way for balance. Then Graduate school.
