BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Jermaine Crumpton scored a career-high 32 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as Canisius bounced back from a loss with an 86-72 win over Fairfield on Tuesday night.

Crumpton finished 11 of 19 from the field and 10 of 12 at the line. Phil Valenti hit 8 of 10 shots for 20 points and Kassius Robertson added 13 points for Canisius (11-6, 4-2 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference).
