OUA Summary

York 79, Waterloo 76  In a see-saw affair in which no team took leads larger than 5 points in the second half, the Lions took the lead for good with about 2 1/2 minutes remaining on an open 18 footer by 6'10" Stefan Haynes and then held the Warriors to just one basket the rest of the way to move to 2-3 on the season.  After the Warriors took their final lead at 74-73 on a free throw by Andrew Melbourne, Haynes was left wide open and he made no mistake from just inside the bowl.  Later 5'11" David Tyndale came off a high ball screen and got to the rim giving the Lions a 3 point lead.  But the real story was York's ability to hold Waterloo to only a foul line "j" by Alan Goodhofd.  The first half was lacklustre, filled with whistles and no flow however the teams were allowed to play in the second half and the result was many transition opportunities for both teams and an exciting, entertaining finish for what was a very large, boisterous crowd.  Waterloo (2-3) travels to Sudbury to face Laurentian while the Lions welcome Laurier Golden Hawks.

Windsor 84, Ottawa 81  The Lancers pulled away in the final minutes, led by a resurgent Enrico DeLoretto and a tremendous shooting display from 6'7" Andre Smyth.  With the score tied at 77 and about 2 minutes remaining, the Lancers got a take to the rim from DeLoretto, who shook off a horrible start.  Ottawa held tough without 6'6" Warren Ward (hamstring) and 6'3" Luke Minani, finishing the first quarter on a 7-0 run to lead by 4 and then were up 3 at 44-41 midway through the third.  The score was tied at 58 early in the fourth on a Nemanja Baletic put back for Ottawa but the Lancers took the lead as DeLoretto made a free throw and Josh Collins made a nice run in the lane.  But the spunky Gee-Gees hung tough until late. 

Laurentian 88, Laurier 87  The Voyageurs held off a furious Golden Hawk rally to record their second win of the season behind 32 points from guard Isaiah Pasquale.  Laurentian led 77-64 with about 6 minutes remaining and appeared to be coasting to a comfortable win but 6'5" Kale Harrison (23 points), who battled foul trouble and 6'6" Max Allin (22 points) got it going but could not overcome a tremendous effort by Pasquale, who 21 points after halftime, many in the third quarter when he went off.  Laurentian took the lead for good with an 11-3 run to end the first half and held a double digit leads in the second half.

Toronto 96, Brock 86  The Badgers had no answers inside for 6'7" Andrew Wasik as the burly post scored 25 points and added 8 rebounds while fellow post 6'6" Drazen Glizic added 22 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists as the two combined to go 18 for 26 from the floor.  Brock stayed in the game on the heels of an 18 for 42 effort from downtown but still Toronto led by 17 in the third quarter and kept the game in double digits throughout the second half before a large, boisterous crowd in Toronto.  The Blues broke out to an early 12 point lead but an 8-0 Brock run which included 3's from Cedric Kasango (14 points, 4-6 3's) and Mike Cruikshank (17 points 5-10 3's) brought it to 4 at 40-36, forcing a Blues timeout.  But Toronto scored the next 6 points to go up 10 again late in the second quarter.  Wasik and Glizic then took turns working inside with Glizic the author of some fine feeds inside as the Blues moved to 4-1 on the season.

Carleton 91, Western 66  The Ravens broke the game open early in the second quarter with a 15-2 run after the Mustangs held tough for about a quarter and then dominated from there, outrebounding the Mustangs 36-22 and got a combined 11 for 22 effort from dowtown from 6'2" freshman sensation Phil Scrubb (game-high 26 points) and 6'3" Elliott Thompson (18 points) to hammer the Mustangs, who absorbed their second consecutive lopsided loss at home.  Carleton led by 11 early in the second quarter extended to 23 on a fast break layin by Willy Manigat, who led Carelton with 6 assists, midway through the third quarter and coasted to the easy win.

Lakehead 75, RMC 41  The Wolves allowed only 20 points after three quarters, building a 41 point lead to hammer the Paladins in Thunder Bay.

Guelph 90, Ryerson 77  6'4" Jonathan Moscatelli had 30 including 5-7 3's while 5'11" Kareem Malcolm added 19 as the Gryphs built up a 23 point lead after three quarters to thrash the Rams in Toronto.  Moscatelli and Malcolm combined to go 8 for 13 from beyond the arc, part of a 12-22 effort by the Gryphs from 3.  6'5" Gerald Greenidge had a solid effort with 8 points and 16 rebounds as Guelph handily outrebounded the Rams.  6'3" Ryan McNeilly returned from injury with 17 points to lead Ryerson.

McMaster 69, Queen's 67  The Marauders overcame a 28 point effort from Gaels 6'2" guard Dan Bannister to hold off Queen's in Hamilton, forcing 30 Gales turnovers.  Mac got 17 from fourth year forward Cam Michaud, back after an illness sidelined him last weekend.

Good to see Manny Pasquale back...Isiah really benefited from his return

It is too bad Shavaan Sheldon got into foul trouble; he was dominating the inside; they went to him 3 or 4 times in a row in the 3rd quarter and he made 3 or 4 shots in a row from 5 feet from the rim plus and, and 1.

I wonder how Waterloo is going to match up being much smaller tomorrow.

If Phil Scrubb does not win OUA East ROY this year, there should be an investigation.
Heck, at the rate he is going, he could be the Easts Moser nominee, he has been that good.
