Canisius accepts invitation to CIT

---Canisius College has officially accepted an invitation to participate in the Postseason Tournament (CIT), ending the program’s 17-year postseason drought. The Golden Griffins’ first-round game will be played next Wednesday at the Koessler Athletic Center against an opponent to be determined.

This is the program’s first postseason game since playing Utah on March 14, 1996, in the first round of the NCAA tournament. The Utes were national runner-up to Kentucky. It will be Canisius’ first home postseason game since March 23, 1995, when the team defeated Washington State at the Aud for a berth into the NIT Final Four.

Metro Atlantic Athletic Atlantic members Rider and Loyola (Md.) have also been invited to the CIT.
