Well the Griffs got back to their usual ways and let someone get hot and beat them. They dropped another game this one at Fairfield, 70-51. This drops the Griffs to an impressive 3-16 on the season. Some Freshman named Jonathan Han (Solo), went 9 for 9 total for the game and racked up 16 points. Per usual a team shot really well against Canisius. It can't be a fluke that teams are shooting, what seems to me, about 40% from field. Fairfield shot a impressive 44.4% from the field and a insane 71.4% from the 3 point line ed. note PUT SOME HANDS UP!!!!!. On the Canisius side, Frank Turner led the team in scoring, as he should, with 17 points on the night. The Griffs on the other hand shot a less then impressive 27% from the field. But we've seen thats per usual for the Griffs this year.
And Coach Parrotta?
"You aren't going to beat a lot of teams when they shoot like that from 3-point range," Canisius head coach Tom Parrotta said. "I thought we played very hard in the second half and we had a chance to cut our deficit to single digits, but we came up with some empty possessions, which you can't do when you are trying to make a run like we were."Oh so you were just trying to lose by single digits? Sure they shot lights out from the 3 point line, but only scored 70 points. So if they were draining 3's put some guys out there, make it hard. Empty possessions, that should be the title of the 2007-2008 Griffs highlight tape. Anyway the Griffs are back in action on Sunday against Marist and the game is on MSG at 4pm, so you can watch the Gold shoes that are hideous.
On the ladies side they beat Manhattan 51-48 on the Pack the House night. But set an record that really doesn't mean much, but hell its pretty consistent. When they hit a 3 point shot in their 409th straight game. Mmm thats a lot of games in a row. So the lady Griffs move towards .500 with a win that takes them to 9-10.
