J. Joseph Curran '46 -Basketball Coach, 1953-1959 Curran, who coached the Griffs from 1953-1959, led the Griffs through three of their greatest seasons. In 1954-55 they finished 18-7 and went to the NCAA Regionals. In 1955-56 they finished 19-7 and returned to the NCAA Regionals where they knocked off top-ranked North Carolina State in an exciting four-overtime victory. They then defeated Dartmouth before losing by two (60-58) to Temple in the regional finals. Curran's 1957 team complied a 22-6 record, at the time of his induction, the greatest Canisius record in program history and returned again to the NCAA Tournament. The 1955-56 team was inducted into the Canisius Sports Hall of Fame in 2007.
