Buff News preview of the game.
As his team prepared to host Canisius, the logjam between third place and last place in the conference jumped out at Roberts.

“A lot of teams are close in the standings, so every game is important,” Roberts, a junior guard for the Purple Eagles, said Monday. “One game could either bring you down a few places or take you up three places, depending on who you're playing and what the rankings are.

Someone needs to tell the Niagara broadcast people that there is no audio. The broadcast is in silence right now!
