Michel's late free throws sink Bisons: Manitoba (6-12) 85 at #2 Brandon (16-2) 87 4th year point guard Yul Michel (Montreal) converted a pair of free throws with 1.7 seconds left after being sent to the line on a controversial loose ball foul called against Bisons Issac Ansah as Brandon won again. Brandon blew a 13 point lead allowing Manitoba to take a 85-84 lead with 43 seconds remaining but Michel tied the game by making 1 of 2 throws. Ansah was then called for a foul during a scramble for a loose ball at midcourt. The Bobcats are now in-line for the #1 ranking after their ninth straight victory.
