Acadia 97, RMC 65

Acadia led by 6 after one, took a 46-30 lead into halftime and then coasted with an early third quarter run as 6'6" Alex Traikov again dominated with 25 points and 14 rebounds while reserve Dustin Poirier had 13 of his 20 points after halftime. The score was tied at 14 with about 6 minutes gone in the first quarter when Triakov had back-to-back finishes and when Joe Nwabuzor (10 points, 12 rebounds) put back a 3 point miss at the buzzer, the Axemen led 21-15 after one. Later Acadia finished the second quarter on a 13-5 run to lead by 16. The Axemen then put the game away for good with a 16-6 run off the start of the second half and were never threatened thereafter. Acadia dominated the glass, outrebounding RMC 47-29 including 17 offensive rebounds. 6'10" Nic Cooke had 18 points (14 points after the intermission) and 8 rebounds to lead the scrappy and resilient Paladins. Jon Wilson had 12 including 2 3's while Nova Scotia bred point guard Justin Hill, making his return to Atlantic Canada added 11 with 2 3's.
