A night that featured colorful theatrics from the Blue Crew in the stands, and a 14-point lead on the court at one point for the Crusaders, came down to a nail-biting finish. St. Francis battled their way back to cut Canisius' lead to just one point in the final minute of the game. But, the Red Raiders would get no closer. Canisius hung on for a 57-53 victory, earning the school its third Monsignor Martin High School Athletic Association basketball title in as many years.
