8:00 pm Queen's (18-10, 12-7) at Ottawa (21-7, 15-4) The Gee-Gees are officially ravaged by injuries and must now rely on their depth to compete as 6'4" Josh Gibson-Bascombe is out at least two weeks, likely longer, with a slight tear in his MCL, 6'5" David Labentowicz has a broken foot he has valiantly been playing on for the last 2 weeks and 6'3" Sean Peter is doubtful with a hip pointer injury which kept him out of last Saturday's loss to Toronto. With 6'2" Jacob Gibson-Bascombe out for the season, Ottawa has only 2 of their top 6 players healthy. Meanwhile, Queen's is starting to play solid basketball again. Streaming Sports Network
