The Canisius Golden Griffins and the Niagara Purple Eagles meet in college basketball action from Gallagher Center on Wednesday. 

Canisius enters this game at 9-14 on the year. The Griffins are 1-4 in their last five games, beating Marist while falling to Iona, Fairfield, Quinnipiac and Rider during that stretch. 

In the loss to the Broncs, Canisius’ lead scorer was Malik Johnson with 17 points, six rebounds and two assists. Majesty Brandon added 14 points and eight rebounds there, and Armon Harried had 10 points with five rebounds.

Over on the Niagara side, they’re 7-16 this year. The Eagles are 1-5 in their last six games, beating Quinnipiac while dropping to Monmouth, Saint Peter’s, Marist, Manhattan and Rider. 

In the loss to the Broncs, Niagara’s Nick MacDonald led the way on 18 points with one rebound and one assist. Greg Kuakumensah was also in double-digits there with 12 points, four rebounds and three assists. 

Niagara is 5-2 ATS in their last seven home games and 6-2 ATS in their last eight versus a team with a losing straight-up record. The under is 8-2-1 in the Eagles’ last 11 overall and 4-0-1 in their last five home games. 

Meanwhile, the Griffins are 1-6 ATS in their last seven after a straight-up loss and 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight Wednesday games. Canisius is 5-2-2 ATS in their last nine road games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last five overall. 

Over their last five games, the Griffins have posted some pretty tepid offensive outings, logging 66 or fewer points in four of those. That said, Canisius has still been decent on defense, holding opponents to fewer than 70 points in four of those as well. 

That said, Niagara has finished below 60 points themselves in four of their last five games and I don’t see that changing much here. I’m going to stick with the Griffins, but probably staying away.
