Head Coach

Reggie Witherspoon

Reggie Witherspoon, a Buffalo native and a 27-year veteran of the college basketball coaching ranks, was named the 24th head coach in Canisius College men’s basketball history on May 28, 2016.

In his seven previous seasons as head coach of the Golden Griffins, Witherspoon has guided the program to 94 wins, 65 of which have come in MAAC regular-season play, a share of the 2017-18 MAAC regular-season championship and a pair of national postseason appearances (CIT in 2016-17, CBI in 2017-18).

Entering the 2023-24 season, Witherspoon's 94 career victories at Canisius ranks him fifth in program history, and he needs just six more wins to become only the fifth Canisius head coach to record 100-or more career victories on Main Street. Additionally, he is fifth head coach in the program's 120-year history to hold the title of head coach for eight-or more years.

Since taking over the program prior to the start of the 2016-17 campaign, Witherspoon has guided the Golden Griffins to a winning record in MAAC play three times, highlighted by the 2017-18 squad which won a school-record 15 league games. He enters the 2023-24 campaign as the second-longest tenured MAAC head coach at his current school, trailing only Rider's Kevin Baggett in that category.

Well they killed Colgate in a scrimmage. Line is 13.5 as of now. I’ll take a 13pt win
 
Laid -13 while I was in Mass tonight. We are going to make jump shots, maintain the intensity better and win by 20 plus.
 
if we are gonna continue to miss shots by feet every game is gonna be a slog.
 
Their best returning player is Tahj Steveskie
Yes. He says a lot of steals and assists. Good player.

I suspect we will go after him on defense. He is listed at 6'0 and probably is not quite that tall.

If they play man, whoever he covers (JJ or Judah) is going to try and post him up early and often.

I would definitely play zone if I'm Canisius. Make SU prove they can hit shots.

Probably. With the driving ability of our guards and our struggles hitting 3s so far, I would expect to see a lot of zone.

5 guys in the paint. Cram 'em in there. :p
 
if teams want to zone us we need to find out if the big can get entry passes and drop it back off if teams collapse. if we are getting out on break less zone issues on offense.
