Men's basketball: Stags lead Canisius 31-28 at halftime

It's halftime at the Harbor and after a slow start to the half and then a chippy end, the Stags have taken a 31-28 lead into the halftime break over the Golden Griffs. Both Fairfield head coach Ed Cooley and Canisius head coach Tom Parrotta received technical fouls, along with Stags point guard Jon Han, who was arguing a non-foul call.

The Stags are led in scoring by sophomore forward Yorel Hawkins and junior forward Mike Evanovich who each have nine points. Jon Han chipped in six points, but has three fouls.

Fairfield trailed early by as much as nine (15-6 with 11:14 remaining), but fought back led by three straight three-pointers by Evanovich.

The Stags are shooting just 24 percent from the floor, but are 16-for-17 from the foul line. Hawkins went 7-for-7 in the half.

More to come at the conclusion of the game.
