Dalhousie 94, York 51

The tough Tiger quarter-court "d" was on display again this afternoon at Dalplex as Dal held the Lions to only 34 points after 3 quarters and helped create 26 York turnovers in an easy victory in a game they were in complete control of virtually the entire way. "I thought we did a great job defending and not allowing any easy catches in the hi-post where the Lions like to start their offense", praised Dal Coach John Campbell. "We also had good balance and defended very well." Dal took a 12 point lead after one quarter and went into halftime leading 49-23. 5'11" David Tyndale was the only Lion in double figures, going 4 for 8 from the three point line to finish with 19 points while 6'10" Dejan Kravic had 8 points/11 rebounds for York, which again played virtually their entire lineup for extensive minutes. 6'3" Marcus Wong had 21 points in 19 minutes for Dal while 6'9" Joe Schow added 21 points, 7 rebounds. Campbell was able to go deep into his bench and also limit the minutes of 6'2" Simon Farine, who finished with 15 points in 28 minutes. Both teams begin league play next weekend.
