Saturday Afternoon Results: Morin goes for 40

Laval (8-8) 93, Queen's (10-6) 86 6'7" J.P. Morin helped his Rouge et Or shake off yesterday's poor shooting effort with an All-Canadian peformance, scoring 40 points, including 7-10 3's, to lead Laval over the Gaels. Morin did it inside and outside in a great performance. 6'3" J.F. Beaulieu-Mahieux added 27 points for Laval, going 7 for 8 from downtown, as les Rouge et Or shot 16 for 25 from beyond the arc and 61.4% for the game from the floor. Freshman Jonathan Ogden led Queen's with 22 points including 6 for 9 from three point land as the Gaels also stayed in the game with great perimeter shooting in an action packed game that was very entertaining for a consolation game. Laval led by 14, held off one final Queen's run and then closed the game on the foul line as Morin made his final 2 points from the stripe. Queen's went 12 for 31 from downtown including 6'3" Simon Mitchell's uncharacteristic 0 for 9 performance but still had a chance to win the game.

St. Mary's (14-5) 82, Laurier (5-11) 66 In the first consolation game at the Shoveller tournament at Dal in Halifax, the Huskies broke open a tight game with a second quarter surge to lead by 11 at halftime and then cruised to a win over the Golden Hawks. 6'2" Mark McLaughlin was again instrumental in the SMU victory, leading all scorers with 27 points in 33 minutes. 6'5" Ike Uchegbu had a tidy double double of 15 points and 10 rebounds in only 22 minutes. 6'5" Kale Harrison led the Hawks with 14 points and 11 rebounds. SMU will play Laurentian tomorrow while Laurier will meet UNB.

UNB 69, Laurentian 48 after 3 quarters The Varsity Reds, playing with only 9 players in the lineup, jumped on the Vees often and early. Laurentian, trying to bounce back from a strong effort in pushing host Dal last night before faltering late, had only 18 points midway through the second quarter and the Reds had their perimeter game going.

Acadia (11-3) 85 Brandon (13-5) 72 Acadia had leads as large as 11 in the third quarter but the Bobcats battled back to tie. Acadia took the lead for good at 63-61 with 8 minutes left in the game and took off as Sean Berry hit a big three to give them a 6 point lead and Acadia coasted from there.
From the Wesmen web site : Shawn Berry (Acadia) 29 Player of the Game; Adam Hartman (Brandon) 22 The Acadia Axemen advanced to the consolation final of the MTS Wesmen Classic with a 85-72 victory over the Brandon Bobcats Saturday afternoon.

Leonel Saintil also had a strong game for Acadia collecting a double double 20 points and 12 rebounds. Fifth year forward Adam Hartman led Brandon with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Acadia led at halftime 40-34 and connected on 50% shooting from the field in the second half to extend their lead.
