Bishop's 68, Memorial 65

5'10" Orien Green's three from the left wing with about 2 1/2 minutes remaining gave the Gaiters the lead for good and later Green made 4 of 4 free throws in the waning seconds as the Gaiters won their first game of the season, coming from behind to defeat the Sea-hawks in the first game of the Classique des Citadins at UQAM in Montreal this afternoon.

With MUN leading 53-47 and 5 1/2 minutes remaining in the game, the Gaiters came out of a timeout energized, especially on the defensive end, forging a game-deciding 13-3 run in the next 4 minutes to take control of the game.  Gaiters got back-to-back treys from 6'5" Tim Hunter and freshman Mike Andrews and then off excellent ball movement, Green found himself open from downtown and he made no mistake to give Bishop's the lead for good at 58-56.  He then stole the ball on the next possession and score an uncontested layup for a four point lead with 2:22 remaining.

MUN had one last run left, getting it to within 1 at 64-63 after a 7-2 which included a big 3 by Will Bradbury, but the Gaiters held despite two free throw misses by guard Sean Monplaisir as Hunter grabbed an offensive rebound, setting up a pair of Green free throws with 7 seconds left and Bishop's did not allow Memorial to get off a shot on the game's final possession.
