Acadia, Dal sweep OUA East teams

Acadia 82, York 73 6'3" Casey Fox had 21 points including all 8 of his second half points from the free throw line in the last 7 minutes of play as the Axemen pulled away with a late 11-2 run to defeat the Lions in Wolfville. 6'10" Stefan Haynes had 14 points and 8 boards for the Lions while 6'5" Vadim Razenberg added 14 on 7-8 shooting. With Acadia clinging to a two point lead at 62-60 after a three pointer by York guard David Tyndale (11 points), the Axemen went on their game deciding run that was highlighted by only one basket (by Andre Grant who had 14 points/5 rebounds off the bench) and 9 made free throws to give Acadia a 73-62 lead with 4 1/2 minutes remaining. York made their final run to get it to 4 with 1 minute remaining but 6'6" Alex Traikov (16 points/8 rebounds) knocked in a jumper and the Axemen, who shot 16 for 19 from the foul line in the last 7 minutes of the game, made their free throws to hold off York. Acadia led 19-10 early but an 8-0 York run toward the end of the first quarter, led by Haynes and 6'6" Justin Bell (4 points in the run) gave the Lions life and the game remained close virtually the entire way from there. York was whistled for 26 fouls for the night against only 12 for Acadia. The Lions had 11 of their 12 dressed players log at least 10 minutes of play as they search for their rotation. BOX SCORE

Dalhousie 72, RMC 38 The Tigers had their troubles against the RMC zone, going only 8 for 34 from downtown and 12-23 from the line in shooting 33% for the game but it was still enough to route the Paladins at Dalplex. Dal's tenacious "d" was on display as RMC was held to only 14 first-half points and only 21 after three quarters after which Dal led 62-21. 6'2" Simon Farine had 16 points to lead the Tigers, who grabbed 20 offensive rebounds in the game, while 6'6" Simon Dakin led RMC with 11 points and 6 boards.
