St. Mary's 66, York 53

The Huskies break a five-game losing streak with a victory at home against the Lions in the first game of the Stu Aberdeen Classic. The Huskies led the game by over 20 points on two seperate occasions, once in the first half and then again in the second half before Coach Ross Quackenbush went deep into his bench. Flashy point guard Joey Handles Haywood finished with a game-high 21 points and 6 assists in only 20 minutes for Saint Mary's, which was playing their fifth game in seven days and their first of the pre-season at home in the Tower in Halifax. Fifth-year guard Mark McLaughlin recovered from some minor shooting woes while in Southern Ontario to go 5 for 9 from the floor for 11 points and added 8 rebounds and 2 assists. Saint Mary's got a strong effort from long-armed 6'8" sophomore Ian Robertson with 8 points and 8 boards in 15 minutes. There were no Lions in double figures. SMU hosts RMC on Saturday and then X on Sunday afternoon in a pre-season game. York meets Acadia tomorrow night and then Dal on Saturday.
