PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Billy Baron scored 21 points and made a 3-pointer at the buzzer to lift Canisius to an 86-85 victory over Elon on Tuesday night in the North Consolation game of the NIT Season Tip-Off.

Elon (2-3) led 69-58 after an 18-2 run and led 85-77 with 2:43 to play. Sebastian Koch's free throws with 13:55 left in the game gave Elon a lead at 58-56 that they would hold until the final second.
