Canisius wins, 64-59

I was more certain Iona would beat Canisius than I was of anything else in this tournament. 
I was wrong. 
The Golden Griffins pulled away down the stretch, picking up an improbable postseason win and sending Iona's season to a crashing, unexpected conclusion. 
Rishawn Johnson scored 14 points off the bench, Bob Bevilacqua had 14 as well and Frank Turner had 12 for the Griffins, who won despite shooting 23.8 percent from 3-point range and 68.4 percent from the free-throw line. 
Now Tommy Dempsey has to convince his team its in for a challenge against a team it beat by a combined 84 points in two regular season games. 
That's it for me today. Thanks to everyone who sent in their men's tournament picks. I'll post the standings tomorrow morning, which starts bright and early with the Fairfield and Iona women in a 9:30 a.m. semifinal.
