    LEWISTON, N.Y. (AP)-Lorenzo Miles scored 21 points Sunday to lead Niagara to a 79-61 win over Canisius.

    Niagara (13-11, 8-5 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) broke open a close contest with a 25-5 run that lasted nearly 10 minutes through the middle of the second half. Leading 46-43 with 16 minutes left, the Purple Eagles opened the run with three consecutive 3-pointers in less than a minute. Miles capped it with a field goal at 7:16 to make the score 71-48.

    Four players scored at least two field goals during the decisive Niagara run. Clif Brown finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds for Niagara. J.R. Duffey scored 15.
