Ottawa 73, Bishop's 69

In a sluggish game that had 48 turnovers, the Gee-Gees survived some late Gaiters runs and 29 turnovers of their own to win their second straight at the Classique des Citadins at UQAM.  6'9" Louis Gauthier continues to build a solid fifth season, leading all scorers with 23 points on 8 for 9 shooting from the floor while Ottawa also got a lift from little-used reserve 6'1" point guard Yacob Issayas, who had all 6 of his points in the fourth quarter including a pair of clutch free throws.

The scrappy Gaiters, who led by 6 in the third quarter before the Gee-Gees took the lead for good early in the fourth, got it to within 1 on a couple of occasions late but Ottawa made their free throws to hold on.  Onnex Blackwood led the Gaiters with 19 points on 8-14 shooting while Orien Green added 13 but went only 1 for 8 from downtown.  Ottawa's Warren Ward finished with 14 points and 5 rebounds and iced the game with a pair of key free throws late but went only 5-13 from the floor and turned it over 7 times.
