Quebec Summary

McGill 59, Bishop's 58  The Gaiters staged a exciting fourth-quarter rally but came up short at home as 6'0" Oriene Green missed a jumper on the final possession which would have given Bishop's their first lead since late in the first quarter.  The Redmen took the lead for good with an 8-0 run to end the first quarter and then led 40-22 midway through the third quarter.  Shortly thereafter, Bishop's coach Rod Gilpin switched to a 1-3-1 zone and the Redmen could not make shots as they went 1 for 13 from 3 point land in the second half but held on for the win.  Onnex Blackwood was instrumental in the Bishop's drive to try to take the lead, scoring 8 of his 13 points in the fourth and Jeremy Leonard-Smith returned from injury to knock down a pair of threes in the run but Bishop's could not get over the hump.  Olivier Bouchard led McGill with 12 points while Michael White and Winn Clark added 11 apiece.  Redmen freshman Simon Bibeau battled fouls all night before finally picking up his fifth in the fourth quarter and did not reach double figures, missing several shots against the zone.

Laval 72, UQAM 71  Rouge et Or trailed for much of the game in Montreal but pulled out the victory to reamin undefeated in advance of tomorrow's game at home against winless Bishop's.
