    BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Ryan Bacon scored on a tip-in as time expired, giving St. Peter's a 59-58 victory over Canisius in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference on Sunday.

    Bacon scored a team-high 18 points and grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds for the Peacocks (7-17, 4-10). Wesley Jenkins chipped in 17 points.

    Greg Logins scored a career-high 26 points and pulled down 13 rebounds for the Golden Griffins (7-17, 2-12), but was held scoreless in the final 10 minutes. Frank Turner added 17 points.

    Canisius led by as much as 12 with 6:48 left in the first half. The teams exchanged the lead three times in the final 1:22.

    The Griffins went up 58-57 on a Turner jump shot with 1:02 to go, but lost possession after a jump ball was called with four seconds remaining, setting the stage for Bacon's decisive play.
