Acadia 72, Guelph 61

A 23-4 run bridging the third and fourth quarters broke a tie and 6'8" Owen Klassen had a 16 point, 12 rebound double double to lead the Axemen to their second win in a week over the Gryphs.  Recall last week that Klassen knocked in a buzzer-beating 3 in Guelph to cap a wild Axemen come back.  5'11" Kareem Malcolm was again a one-man offensive show for the Gryphs with 27 points while adding 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 5 steals plus 4-7 from downtown.

With Guelph up 5 at the half off a tremendous defensive performance, Acadia tied the score at 36 midway through the third and then broke the game open in a 6 minute stretch as 7 different Axemen contributed to the game-breaking run including 5 by Klassen and 5 by 6'6" Justin Boutilier (13 points, 8 rebounds).  Guard Tyler Lutton had 18 points in 36 minutes for Acadia.

Guelph again played without 4 regulars including 6'4" Jonathan Moscatelli.
