Canisius Team Preview

The Canisius Golden Griffins come into this one looking to rebound from a 78-55 loss to Marist last time out. Tre Dinkins leads the Golden Griffins in scoring and assists with 14.9 PPG and 3.6 APG while Siem Uijtendaal has 13.7 PPG with 3.6 RPG. Frank Mitchell has 13.1 PPG with a team-high 11.7 RPG to lead the Golden Griffins in rebounding this season while also capping off the scoring in double figures for Canisius up to this point in the year. As a team, Canisius is averaging 71.8 PPG on 43.9% shooting from the field, 34.5% from three and 64.1% from the foul line this season. Canisius will meet Niagara after this one.

Siena Team Preview

The Siena Saints come into this one looking to rebound from a 75-53 loss to Saint Peter’s last time out. Sean Durugordon has a team-high 19.4 PPG and 7.6 RPG through 13 games so far this year while Michael Eley’s added 14.3 PPG with 6.1 RPG through 15 games up to this point. Giovanni Emejuru has 10 PPG with 6 RPG to cap off the scoring in double figures so far this season while Zek Tekin has 9 PPG with a team-high 3.1 APG to lead the Saints in the assist department. As a team, Siena is averaging 60.1 PPG on 39.6% shooting from the field, 27.2% shooting from three and 64% from the foul line this season.

Canisius vs. Siena Prediction

I’m on the under in this one. These are two of the worst offenses in the MAAC and Canisius is struggling to put up 65 PPG in a lot of their road games while Siena’s scoring just over 60 PPG at home this season. This to me feels like a first to 65 wins kind of game, so give me the under here.
