Humber 74, Guelph 64 in Rexdale, Ontario

The Gryphs dug themselves a big 18 point halftime hole by going 21% from the floor including 1-10 from three point land in the first half before whittling it down to 6 with the ball and 3 minutes remaining but could not all the way back against another in the seemingly-annual strong teams at Humber College. Guelph came out strong in the third quarter, bringing the game back to single digits quickly and were in a position to challenge for the lead however 11 missed free throws in the second half capped their undoing. Down 6 with the ball and 3 minutes remaining, 6'4" Jonathan Moscatelli (2-11 shooting for night) had a wide open look that got stick between the rim and the backboard and Guelph never challenged again. 6'2" Dan McCarthy led the way for the Gryphs with 17 points while 6'4" Jay Mott, who left the game in the fourth quarter with another ankle injury, added 13 for Guelph which trailed 39-21 at halftime. Guelph also played without two of their freshmen: 6'11" Colin Hood and 6'8" Matt Howlett. 6'5" Jeremy Alleyne showed a slick shooting touch for the Hawks, leading all scorers with 18 points while twenty-seven year old 6'8" J.R. Bailey, an ex-Gryphon in his second stint with the Hawks, had a 13 point/13 rebound double double for the winners.
