St. Peter's beats Canisius 61-58 in MAAC quarterfinal

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Quadir Welton scored 15 points and grabbed nine rebounds, and second-seeded St. Peter's held off No. 7 Canisius to win Friday night's Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Tournament quarterfinal 61-58.

Trevis Wyche scored 10 points for the Peacocks (19-12), who will play the winner of No. 3 Iona vs. No. 6 Rider in Sunday's semifinal.

The Peacocks scored 12 straight and led 42-25 early in the second half. Canisius closed to 53-47 on Jermaine Crumpton's dunk while St. Peter's went without a field goal for nearly 10 minutes. Crumpton's 3 with 42 seconds left made it a one-point game, 59-58, but Wyche's layup put the Peacocks up 61-58 with 13 seconds to go. Three-pointers by Crumpton and Reese rimmed out and time expired.
