Let us hope for a good year. A post season tournament would be nice. Go Griffs.

That looks like a very tough 2021-22 schedule for the Canisius Golden Griffins basketball team. St Bonaventure Bonnies are the best of the Big 4 this season then Buffalo Bulls, then Niagara Purple Eagles than Canisius Golden Griffins.

Buffalo Big 4 Predicted Projections
1. St Bonaventure Bonnies
2. Buffalo Bulls
3. Niagara Purple Eagles
4. Canisius Golden Griffins

That is problem the Griffs can’t be last in the Big 4 yearly. The Griffs lose credibility like that locally. Regardless how Canisius does with the schedule if the Griffs are fourth in the Big 4 again Reggie Witherspoon and the Griffs AD Bill Maher has to be gone. You fire both because it is because it is becoming obvious Bill Maher won’t fire his UB buddy Reggie Witherspoon. There has to be standards Canisius can’t be 300 ranked and last in the Big 4 again. I don’t see many wins beyond 10 wins which is sad if my prediction is accurate. Niagara Purple Eagles incoming class looks better than what Reggie Witherspoon brought in. Again I hope I wrong but I don’t see a lot there from a recruiting stand point from Reggie Witherspoon staff. The Griffs need to hire a younger hungrier coach like what the Niagara Purple Eagles basketball team has in my opinion. Go Griffs! Let’s Go Buffalo

In the various preseason predictions that are starting to creep out looks like we will be picked last or near bottom in most, it's basically Iona first and the rest in any order, I think we actually exceeded predictions last year and I think(hope) we can do so this year as well if Hitchon can go full speed. It seems our defense and rebounding are not considered strengths in these team reviews and we certainly need to improve in both these areas, the question might be can this coaching staff raise the intensity/toughness level of this team?

The thing with Iona schedule is Rick Pitino is talking about playing games at MSG, Brooklyn Nets arena and the new New York Islanders arena. Again what is Canisius schedule effort wise is the college and Reggie Witherspoon doing to improve Griffs basketball recruiting? Again Canisius the school and some of our Canisius alums need to wake up the usual same yearly rolls the basketball out at the KAC and hope to get lucky with Reggie Witherspoon coaching them up isn’t going to work history has shown us that. The Griffs basketball has lost so much of the share of the Buffalo sports market it is really sad. It doesn’t have to be like this there is so much potential there if Canisius College was smart about growing our basketball program. The Griffs are never going to win a MAAC championship the way KAC currently is. Think the Griffs last NCAA tournament was when the Griffs called the AUD home. Since Canisius stopped playing Key Bank Center for 2,100 seat land KAC the Griffs haven’t done much other than the Billy Baron show years with coach Jim Baron. The Griffs basketball team doesn’t get a talented kid like that without his father being the Griffs coach at the time the way the KAC currently is. I don’t believe any coach can win a MAAC championship the way the other MAAC schools are improving facilities wise the top tier MAAC teams anyway in the KAC the way it is. Good elite basketball players aren’t playing in a glorified high school gym for Canisius. The Griffs basketball team needs to either renovated the KAC or play a good part of there MAAC schedule at Key Bank Center again if Canisius is serious about Division I MAAC basketball in Buffalo in my opinion. Go Griffs! Let’s Go Buffalo

If Green, Hitchon, and Fritz are healthy, then it will all come down to contributions at PG. If that's above average, there is no reason the Griffs can't finish in the top handful of MAAC teams with a fighting chance in the conference tournament.
