OUA Interlock Tonight

Windsor 81, Toronto 69  The Lancers used full court zone pressure to confuse Toronto guards and create numerous early turnovers as Windsor grabbed an early 20-6 lead and cruised, withstanding a couple of Blues runs but were never really threatend as they defeated the Blues in Windsor.  6'1" Enrico DiLoreto led all scorers with 23 points while Josh Collins added 14 points, broking out of mini-slump with a stat sheet stuffing night.  Windsor played without 6'3" Isaac Kuon.  6'5" Alex Hill had 19 points for Toronto, most of them in the second half. more to follow.

Lakehead 89, York 58  Building early leads of over 20 points midway through the first quarter with a dominating defensive performance, the Wolves held the high-powered Lions to only 22 first quarter points to lead by 30 at the half and cruised in Thunder Bay.  York shot just 31% on the game including 1 for 16 from 3 and turned it over 20 times.  Venzal Russell had 18 to lead a balanced Wolves attack, which turned it over only 7 times all night.

Carleton 88, Laurier 80  The Ravens used a late 11-3 run, led by freshman Phil Scrubb (16 points) and fifth-year guard Mike Kenny (9 points all on 3's), to break a late 72-72 tie and win at Laurier.  Carleton jumped out to an early lead on some tremendous 3 point shooting set up by precision offensive sets, extending to 18 by the half.  The Hawks were able to bring the game back to within 9, helped by getting to the foul line.  Still, Carleton led by 9 at 72-63 with 5 minutes remaining when 6'5" Kale Harrison (39 points on the night) knocked down a three, made 2 ft. then added another and finally tied the game with another clutch 3 - a personal 9-0 run in about 1 minute - that brought the crowd to life.  But the Ravens scored the next 6 points and when Kenny hit a transition 3 Carleton's lead was back up to 8.  Carleton's Tyson Hinz and Aaron Chapman (18 points, 8 rebounds) both fouled out.  The Ravens were 12-24 3's on the night while Laurier stayed in the game with 18 offensive rebounds but hurt themselves at the free throw line going only 55%.

Laurentian 80, McMaster 77  In maybe the most important victory in the Shawn Swords coaching era, the Voyageurs overcame a 22 point first quarter deficit, playing without star guard Manny Pasquale, to stun the Marauders in Hamilton.  Laurentian held Mac to only 42 points over the final 30 minutes and got 22 points and 9 rebounds from 6'7" Mike Hull, who dominated the second half and another 21 from Isaiah Pasquale.  Down 5 with about 2 minutes remaining, the Vees took the lead for good on a steal and three point play by freshman Tychon Carter-Newman.  Mac took the early lead using full-court pressure to create turnovers and easy transition scores but Laurentian learned to deal with the press and got back into the game.  Mac got 20 points, 5 rebounds and 12 assists from 6'3" sophomore Victor Raso in absorbing their third consecutive loss.  Marauders were without 6'6" Cam Michaud (illness) and 6'8" Scott Brittain (concussion symptoms).  6'5" veteran Scott Laws battled fouls all night and finished with only 5 points before fouling out.

Western 88, Ryerson 57  The Rams broke open a tight 4 point game at halftime with a dominant second half effort as Ryan Barbeau had 19 points, Andy Wedemire added 16 points/7 rebounds and 6'6" Garrett Olexiuk had 10 points, 11 rebounds.  The Rams, who shot only 3 for 29 from downtown, got 19 from Ola Adgeboruwa and 13 from freshman Jahmal Jones.  Ryerson welcomed back fifth-year guard Ryan McNeilly but played without 6'8" Eric Lapointe and 6'8" Bjorn Michaelsen, still out with injuries.

Waterloo 82, Ottawa 65  6'1" fifth-year guard Luke Kieswetter had 4 first-quarter 3's to give the Warriors an early 16 point lead and Waterloo held off a late Ottawa comeback to win their second of the year.  Ottawa had it to 4 with 3 minutes remaining but had 3 charges and a turnover on their next 4 possessions.  Gee-Gees lost 6'6" Warren Ward in the morning shootaround to a hamstring injury and Ottawa struggled to score as a result.  Kieswetter was tremendous, finishing with 18 points, adding 8 assists against zero turnovers in 31 minutes.

Brock 85, RMC 53

Guelph 78, Queen's 71

interesting to see the Voyageurs turned the ball over 17 times in the first 11 minutes, but shot 67% from the field during that time and then trailed by 25 points
