Canisius has not been to the NCAA tournament in 23 years and will have to wait at least one more as their season ends in the MAAC semifinals with a 73-59 loss to Monmouth.
The Griffs trailed by nine at halftime but cut the lead to three a couple times in the second half.
Monmouth started really pulling away with an 8-0 run and never looked back.
Takal Molson ended with a team-high 17 points.
Canisius hasn't made the MAAC championship game since 2001.
