Ryerson 71, UNB 62

Taking the lead for good midway through the second quarter, the host Rams propelled into the championship game of their own tournament with a solid win against the Varsity Reds.  6'3" Ryan McNeilly led the way with 19 points for Ryerson while 6'1" freshman Jahmal Jones shook off a tough game yesterday with 17 and fellow freshman 6'7" Bjorn Michaelsen added 12 point and 10 boards while 6'2" Ola Adegboruwa added 11, 8 in the first half, off the bench.  6'1" Dan Quirion led all scorers with 23 points for UNB which shot only 4 of 20 from downtown and was outrebounded 41-33.

With the score tied at 22, Ryerson finished the half on a 12-4 run and kept the lead the rest of the way, although the Reds did cut it to 1 early in the third.  After that Rye responded with a 23-14 run to take their largest lead at 10 early in the fourth and withstood one final Reds rally that got it to 3 with 3 minutes remaining but Ryerson closed strong.
