McMaster 81, Laurentian 68

The Marauders rode a big third quarter and received top performances from 6'6" Keenan Jeppessen (23 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists) and 6'2" Tyrell Vernon (25 points on 12-18 shooting) to overcome a 3-14 effort from downtown and a 61% effort from the foul line to defeat the Voyageurs in Sudbury. With Mac up 2 at halftime, the Marauders took over, primarily by taking care of the ball (only 13 turnovers) and forcing 22 Laurentian miscues. 6'6" Cam Michaud added 11 points and 8 rebounds for Mac. The Vees stayed in the game on the foul line, going 20-24 for the game including an 8-10 effort from 6'6" Matas Tirilus who had a 14-point/13-rebound double double but went only 3-12 from the floor. Manny Pasquale led Laurentian, which went 8 for 33 from beyond the arc, with 15 points.
