Beilein, 1994-96 Men's Basketball Team Return to Canisius

March 2, 2016


BUFFALO, NY - One of the most successful men’s basketball coaches in Canisius history returned to the Koessler Athletic Center this winter, to mark the 20-year anniversary of the program’s only MAAC championship.

Canisius recognized John Beilein, along with members of the 1994, 1995 and 1996 men’s basketball teams, during halftime of the Canisius-Siena game on January 24.

During those three years, the Canisius team went to two NITs and an NCAA Tournament. The 1993-1994 Golden Griffins won the program’s only MAAC regular-season crown and the 1996 team is the last in program history to reach the NCAA Tournament.
