Tough to handicap this one. Obviously, Canisius lost Billy Baron, who was a great college player. Was an impact player in some games as a frosh at UVa, then followed his dad on to URI and Canisius. Billy put up some huge numbers, and obviously, had the greenlight from his old man to put it up.
What is striking to me about Canisius is their play in exhibition games. They lost to Damean College, who I have never even heard of, by 2 in OT, and squeaked by some team called Ryerson, who is a Canadian school. Wow. I’m shocked that they beat UVm in their opener, as UVm is a solid program.
Lehigh at home in this one, you have to take the Mountain Hawks by double digits. 75-62.
