McGill 74, York 72

6'9" Greg Gause hit a hook shot that bounced around the rim before falling in to give the Redmen the lead for good with about 2 minutes remaining and McGill held off a furious Lions rally that brought the game back from a 14 point deficit for a big win in North York.  5'11" third-year guard David Tyndale led the Lions rally with 17 of his game-high 26 points in the second half as York tied it but could not get over the hump. 

6'3" freshman Simon Bibeau led McGill with 24 points but likely the best Redmen on the floor this night was another freshman, 6'4" guard Karim Sy-Morrissett who had 18 points and 5 rebounds and a strong second half effort.  Gause finished with 8 points and 2 rebounds.

The Redmen used a strong defensive effort to take a 39-25 lead into halftime before Tyndale went to work on the perimeter and York's talented stable of big guys led by 6'10" Dejan Kravic and 6'10" Stefan Haynes dominated the glass.  But the Redmen gutted out a road win on their way to tomorrow night's meeting in downtown Toronto against the Varsity Blues.  York meets Bishop's tomorrow night.
