ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Cameron Young scored 17 points with 11 rebounds and Quinnipiac, the No. 7 seed in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, upset second-seeded Canisius 72-69 in a quarterfinal matchup on Friday night.

The Bobcats (12-20) advance to a Sunday semifinal to play the winner of No. 3 seed Niagara versus sixth-seeded Fairfield who play Saturday.

Aaron Robinson’s 3-pointer put Quinnipiac up 66-60 with 2:32 left before a 6-2 Canisius spurt made it a two-point contest. Young made a pair of foul shots with 42 seconds to go before Jermaine Crumpton followed with a 3-point play with 36 seconds left.

Rich Kelly’s layup put Quinnipiac up 72-69 with 10 seconds remaining, but Takal Molson missed a 3 and Crumpton missed a layup to end it. Kelly finished with 16 points, Jacob Rigoni scored 12 and Abdulai Bundu finished with 10 rebounds.

Crumpton led Canisius (21-11) with 22 points and 11 rebounds but missed half his 16 free-throw attempts. Isaiah Reese scored 13 and Molson scored 10.
