The Canisius Golden Griffins shoot for a road win at the Dartmouth Big Green.
The Canisius Golden Griffins were labeled as a team that should not be ignored but they need to regroup. The Golden Griffins were not strong at either end of the floor in a 70-53 loss to visiting Saint Peter’s as an eight point favorite Saturday. The Peacocks did their damage on 52% marksmanship while Canisius was limited to less then 30% which was a difference of six field goals. Kassius Robertson led a trio of double digit scorers with 15 points on 5-15 from the field while Jermaine Crumpton and Jamal Reynolds scoring ten points apiece with Reynolds hauling in nine rebounds. Options were limited offensively as Canisius was held to a season low in shooting accuracy.

The Dartmouth Big Green need a reversal of fortunes to prevent the season from getting out of hand. A 77-60 loss at Harvard has the Big Green staring at defeats in six of seven as their defense struggled to get consistent stops. Harvard fired away at nearly 53% while the Big Green countered with 40% shooting with nine more looks at the basket which wasn’t enough. Dartmouth received 23 points from Miles Wright with Evan Boudreaux adding 21 points and ten rebounds with both going 15-29 from the floor. Kevin Crescenzi tossed in eleven points but production was difficult to find with six others combining for 15 points.
The over is 8-1 in Canisius last 9 road games and is 7-1 in their last 8 Tuesday games while going 8-2 in their last 10 overall. Dartmouth are 2-10-1 ATS in their last 13 home games and are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games overall while the under is 15-7 in their last 22 non-conference games. I don’t see a great betting opportunity here to be honest…
