Stafford Trueheart and Howard Washington each scored 17 points to lead Canisius over Aquinas 65-51 in Buffalo Tuesday night. Trueheart added 14 rebounds, eight blocks and five assists

Pat McLamore led the Lil' Irish with 12 points. 

It was the second time in four days Cansius had beaten a top Section Five class AA team. The Griffins beat Schroeder 71-55 at the East High RAP Invitational on Saturday. 

The game was even at the half, but Canisius took a five point lead after the third quarter. A 10-4 run to open the fourth pushed that advantage to 11 with four minutes to play. Aquinas never got closer than seven the rest of the way. 

Canisius improves to 15-2. Aquinas is now 11-3.
