QSSF: Stingers grab second after win at McGill

Concordia 84, McGill 75 The Stingers nearly blew a 17 point lead, holding off a fourth-quarter rally that brought the game back to within 2 with 5 1/2 minutes by getting balanced scoring (4 guys in double figures) to grab home court advantage for next weekend's sudden death semi-final playoff game. 6'1" Damian Buckley again led the way for the Stingers with 18 points but got plenty of offensive support as 6'8" Jamal Gallier, rounding into form after fighting injury for much of the year, had a 12 point/12 rebound double double while 5'11" Pierre Thompson had his best offensive outing in several weeks with 13 points. Concordia also got 11 points from freshman Decee Krah and 7 points/10 rebounds from versatile 6'3" Andre Johnny in building a large 3rd quarter lead after leading by 8 at the half. In the second half, the Redmen got back in the game on a flurry of 3's including bombs by 6'4" Paul Herra and 6'4" Matt Thornhill (17 points, 6 rebounds). 6'4" Sean Anthony had another sterling performance with 26 points and 10 rebounds including an old-fashioned three point play that got the game back to within 2. But Concordia took over when it counted and did what they had to do to grab the win. Earlier, Thornhill scored 8 points in the first 6 minutes of the game to give the Redmen the early 18-8 lead which quickly vanished and the Redmen played catch up the rest of the way.
