College Power 10: Reese tops after recording first Canisius triple-double

The College Power 10 ranks the top performers each week in Western New York collegiate athletics.

1. Isaiah Reese: Canisius men's basketball's sophomore guard recorded the first triple-double in the program's 114-year history, totaling 23 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds in the Golden Griffin's 104-84 victory against Youngstown State. Reese has surpassed the 20-point mark in two of his three games this year.

2. Anthony Johnson: UB's star wide receiver recorded his fifth 100-yard game of the season, notching 153 yards and a UB-record four touchdowns in the Bulls' 40-24 victory against Ball State on Thursday. His longest touchdown was a 53-yard pass from a scrambling Tyree Jackson.

3. Olivia Vernon and Canisius women's basketball: Vernon hit a game-winning layup with six seconds remaining in overtime to lift the Golden Griffins past St. Bonaventure, 71-69, on Wednesday. That was one of two victories this week for Canisius, as the Golden Griffins moved to 2-1 with a 71-57 road victory against Bowling Green on Sunday.

4. Canisius men's hockey's offense: Nine different Golden Griffins found the back of the net in Canisius' two-game series sweep of Bradley this weekend. Canisius has scored 17 goals during its three-game win streak.

5. Bri Gawronski: Buffalo State's freshman hockey goalie was named the NEWHL Goalie of the Week after allowing just one goal in the Bengals two games against Cortland. Gawronski (Dunkirk) is filling in between the pipes for injured starter Justine Silva.

6. UB men's basketball: The Bulls moved to 2-0 for the first time since 2011-12 with a 81-76 victory against the defending Ohio Valley Conference champions, Jacksonville State, on Wednesday.

8. Summer Hemphill: The UB women's basketball forward made the most of her 11 minutes on the floor against Maryland Eastern Shore. She went 5 for 5 from the field for a team-leading 12 points, grabbed two rebounds and blocked a career-high four shots in the Bulls' 76-41 victory.

9. Sarah Saba: The Lancaster grad scored a career-high 30 points in Daemen women's basketball's loss to No. 2 Virginia Union, pushing her to 10th all-time in Wildcats' scoring. She currently leads the team in points (16) and rebounds (6.3) per game.

10. Matt Mobley: St. Bonaventure's senior guard continued to produce in the absence of injured Jaylen Adams in the Bonnies' Saturday meeting with Jackson State. He surpassed the 25-point mark for a second straight game, notching 27 in the Bonnies' 72-58 victory.
