Gaels Hammer King's College (Alta.)

Gaels Hammer Eagles

Box Score

Mitch Leger of Kingston, Ont., posted a double-double, 28 points and 10 rebounds, in Queen’s staggering 90–33 defeat of the King’s College Eagles on Saturday night.

The outcome of the game was decided very early on in the game as the Gael’s speed and offensive movement quickly left the Eagles trailing by double digits. This early run was punctuated by a forceful dunk by Timothy Doyle of Belleville, Ont.

The Eagles struggled to adjust to the quick play of the Gaels and had 18 turnovers in the first half alone, further adding to Queen’s 52-18 lead at the end of the first half.

The second half was much of the same, with the Gaels flexing both their offensive and defensive muscle while the Eagles fought to put points up on the board. Baris Ondul, of Istanbul, Turkey, used his high energy play to continue to put the offensive pressure on the Eagles. Gaels’ veteran Ryan Hairsine of St. Mary’s, Ont. contributed 15 points to the victory, with a game high three 3-pointers.

The Men’s Basketball team’s next game is at Bartlett Gymnasium against Concordia University Friday, October 2nd at 8:00 pm.
