Canisius men's basketball rolls to another win at Men Against Breast Cancer Showcase

Canisius won its second consecutive game at the Men Against Breast Cancer Showcase in Stockton, Calif., beating Arkansas-Pine Bluff, 81-58, late Saturday night.

On Friday, Canisius outlasted Texas State, 68-62.

Against Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Isaiah Reese and Takal Molson each scored 19 points for the Golden Griffins (3-3), and the Canisius shot 55.8 percent from the field.

Reese was 7-for-10 from the field and 5-for-7 from three in 31 minutes. He added seven rebounds and six assists. Molson was 7-for-10 and added four rebounds and four assists.

Spencer Foley had 12 points with four three-pointers; Jermaine Crumpton had 11 points and six rebounds; and Jalanni White had eight points and seven rebounds.

"This was obviously a good team win for us tonight," coach Reggie Witherspoon said. "Arkansas-Pine Bluff is well coached and they have some really good athletes on their roster. The nice thing about a game tonight is because we were able to get a lot of guys playing time, and we were able to really focus on some things that we've been stressing in practice.

"The other nice thing is that we were able to get some guys some rest tonight. We have now played four games in the last week in three different cities, and we have a tough test tomorrow in Pacific on their home floor. So while we were able to work in some guys off the bench, it was nice to get some other guys some time to sit and watch, and learn as well."

Martaveous McKnight scored a game-high 20 points for Arkansas-Pine Bluff (0-8).

Canisius plays Pacific in the final game of the Men Against Breast Cancer Showcase at 6 p.m. ET.
