There's a chance Canisius might benefit from Wichita State coach Mark Turgeon's departure to Texas A&M. The Griffs and Shockers were among the final teams battling last fall for 6-foot-7 forward Guy Ntang of New Hampton, a New Hampshire prep school. Ntang signed with Wichita in October but it's reasonable to think he's going to at least study his options now that Turgeon is gone.
Canisius could thus come back into the picture with a player you would think would have big impact in the MAAC if he was good enough to be signed by a Missouri Valley school. Ntang is from Cameroon, the African nation that also produced Canisius assistant Lazare Adingono. Another connection worth watching.
