UNB 81, Waterloo 74

6'5" Alex Desroches and 6'8" Lonzell Lowe each had 20 point/10 rebound double doubles and Desroches and Dustin Anthony each had 5 points in a game-deciding 14-2 run midway through the third quarter as the Varsity Reds knocked off the Warriors, who hurt themselves going only 1-13 as a team from beyond the arc.

The Warriors erased an early 10 point V-Reds lead as freshman Mike Wright's jumper tied the game at 32 late in the second quarter.  But UNB scored the final 6 points of the first half, highlighted by a pair of j's from 6'1" Daniel Quirion (15 points).  Waterloo then took their final lead of the night, breaking out to an 11-4 run led by Wayne Bridge (17 points) to lead 43-42 with 6 minutes remaining in the quarter.  But Desroches hit some shots and got to the free throw line and the V-Reds later held off a Warrior run that got it to 4 early in the fourth but Waterloo could get no closer.  6'3" Cam McIntyre led all scorers with 25 points on 9-22 shooting from the floor but went 0-6 from downtown while the Reds were able to get the ball inside and pulled away midway through the fourth for the double digit win.
