Tonawanda News — Bulls standout Javon McCrea finished with 13 points and six rebounds, but was silenced in the second half because of Canisius’ zone defense. Baron said that going into the game the game plan was to frustrate McCrea and make things difficult for him on the offensive end.
Baron liked the way his team fought back after a slow start.
“Guys shots weren’t falling, we gave up easy layups and turned it over a couple times, but it’s about handling adversity,” Baron said. “I told our guys we had a lot of fight. They put their heads down and they played to win the game.”
Billy Baron scored a game-high 23 points to lead the way for Canisius, while senior Chris Perez chipped in with 16.
