UQAM 82, UPEI 61

The Citadins got their transition game going and created turnovers off their press, riding a very strong second quarter in which they outscored the Panthers 26-12 to lead by 18 at halftime and coasted to an easy win in Montreal. Coach Olga Hrycak was able to use her bench liberally in the second half, giving virtually everyone some time. 6'3" Thierry Justin led UQAM with 18 points, going 2-2 from 3 point land and 6-9 from the floor overall. 6'5" wing Eric Kougnima added 11 points and 6 rebounds for UQAM. 6'5" Matt Fennell, a big, strong inside player with good perimeter skills, finished with 17 points and 8 rbounds to lead UPEI who had star 6'5" forward Manock Lual battle foul trouble all evening. The Citadins led 45-27 at the half. UQAM meets Southern New Hampshire U. (this Thursday) and Franklin Pierce (Saturday), a pair of NCAA DII schools.
