St. Bonaventure looked sleek and reborn in its 97-80 rout of Binghamton on Monday. From Zarryon Fereti's 32 points to Michael Lee's 26, the Bonnies didn't look like anything close to the 7-22 club of a year ago.

With 3:40 left to play in the game, the Canisius women's basketball team leads Colgate, 71-28.
The game was never close as the Griffs lead, 48-13, at halftime.
While Canisius worked on both ends of the floor to earn the win, how valuable are early season blowouts? Do they allow a team gain confidence or are the results too skewed by a weak opponent to be very helpful?

With about three weeks left in the regular season, the race for the Heisman Trophy is as wide open as I've seen it in years. There are at least five players with a legitimate claim to the hardware. As a Heisman voter, my ballot has changed almost weekly. As soon as one frontrunner emerges, he falls back to the pack the following week.
Our ballots aren't due until early De…
While University at Buffalo coach Turner Gill has done wonders turning around the Bulls' football program, there are other examples of African-American coaches who failed in their rebuilding efforts, essentially costing them their careers. One such case is that of former Temple coach Ron Dickerson, who was told by Penn State coach Joe Paterno not to take the Owls' job in 1…
Niagara split its first weekend in College Hockey America play at Bemidji State. Not a bad result on the road, though being blanked 3-0 for the first time since 2005 definitely hurts.
Still, the result kept the Purple Eagles in the mix in the national polls. They slipped from No. 18 to No. 19 in the USCHO.com/CSTV poll and dropped two spots to No. 19 in the Inside College…

A year after Niagara showed its displeasure for playing in the NCAA Tournament opening round game, the NCAA announced on Thursday that it will award this
season's winner the same amount of money a team would get
for winning a first-round game.
For an extra $200,000, we might have more teams who actually want to play in the game.
Bill Brooks, who coached the Canisius College footbal team from 1975-1981, died this week at the age of 62 in Greensboro, N.C. He had a record of 29-24-2 when the school competed at the Division III level.
Brooks helped lead the Golden Griffins to five winning seasons during his seven-year tenure, highlighted by a 6-3 season in 1976 where the Griffs outscored their oppone…
How far does the St. Bonaventure men's basketball team have to go in terms of regaining respect?
In the Atlantic 10 preseason coaches poll released on Thursday, Bona was voted last in the 14-team conference. Not all that surprising.
But the Bonnies also didn't score one player on any of the five preseason teams -- first, second or third team all-conference along with a d…
