Tuesday's Preview: Ottawa at Queen's + New Links

Two games tonight, both in the OUA East, most important being Queen's hosting Ottawa in Kingston in the first of two games between the teams. Clearly, the top 4 teams in the OUA East currently are Carleton, Toronto, Ottawa and Queen's and finishing 2nd or 3rd avoids a potential semi-final matchup with Carleton. With 2 victories against Queen's and a home win against Ottawa, the Varsity Blues have the upper hand in the battle for second spot going forward. Tonight's game in Kingston is critical for the Gaels if they have any hope of finishing in the Top 3. The Gaels and Gee-Gees split a pair of regular season games last season, winning on each other's home floor. Queen's stable of solid freshmen have been tremendous in support of 6'6" Mitch Leger, a sophomore and 6'3" Simon Mitchell, a senior. Both Leger and Mitchell are having all-conference seasons. For the Gee-Gees, when 6'4" Josh Gibson-Bascombe is in top form, they are tough to beat while 6'3" Kingston-area native Donnie Gibson had a breakout game on a big stage against Carleton on Saturday night. Expect a tight game in the sixties and hopefully a big crowd at the Bartlett Gym.

8:00 pm Ottawa (19-6, 13-3) at Queen's (16-9, 10-6)

8:00 pm Carleton (22-0, 16-0) at RMC (0-23, 0-16)
