St. Joe's and Canisius set to meet at Koessler Center at 2 p.m.


Tonawanda News —

Simon said the game is a good barometer for where both teams are at this point in the season.

"You learn a lot about yourself as a team in a game like this. If we lose it's not the end of the world, it's just one game," he said. "You learn about them and yourselves. I don't want to put too much stock in one game but it is important."

Both schools treat St.Joe's-Canisius games differently than the rest of the schedule and, while this is the first time the school's meet in the Koessler Center for a regular season contest, Simon expects it to embody the usual feel of the game.

"It will have a different flavor. It'll be different," Simon said. "We did it for the fans so more people can see the game, because every year both schools have to turn away hundreds of people. Now everybody has a chance to go watch the game."
