Toronto 93, Bishop's 67

In the first game of the Jack Donohue Memorial tournament at Ottawa, the Varsity Blues rode a 15-2 run bridging the end of the first quarter and beginning of second to break a 17 all tie and then coasted to an easy win over Bishop's. The Gaiters had much trouble dealing with Blues veteran shooting guard Rob Paris as he was able to play off fellow guard Nick Magalas, running off down screens and staggers to get open looks from downtown. A late U of T surge gave the Blues a 45-29 halftime lead. Bishop's got back to within 12 a couple of times in the third quarter but Toronto's zone and ability to convert defensively generally confused the Gaiters and the veteran Blues coasted to the easy win. Toronto welcomed back 6'6" Drazen Glizic but is still without 6'8" Nick Snow who severely injured his ankle last weekend against Manitoba and is likely out a couple of more weeks. Head Coach Mike Katz was able to empty his bench rather early, giving his starters ample rest for tomorrow night's meeting with rival uOttawa Gee-Gees.
