Varsity Blues win, Hawks defeated at Daemen College Tournament

CIS teams went 1-1 on the first day of the two-day Daemen College Can-Am Holiday Classic in Amherst, NY (outside Buffalo) as U of T Varsity Blues defeated Houghton College (NAIA) 69-53 while Laurier Golden Hawks were defeated by the host Wildcats 104-69.

6'6" Drazen Glizic led the Blues with 18 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 blocks while fellow 6'6" big Andrew Wasik added 14 points and 9 boards in the win.  The Blues broke it open in the second half after being up 6 at the half. 

In the second game, the host Wildcats then used a 30-7 run bridging the first and second halfs to break open what had been a tight game to win going away over Laurier, which got 15 points from 6'5" Kale Harrison.  The Golden Hawks had led for much of the first half before the late Daemen run that gave the hosts a 7 point halftime lead.  Daemen shot a sizzling 22 for 29 (76%) after halftime.  Game Report

The Blues (1-0) get a shot at the host Wildcats (1-0) tomorrow for the unofficial tournament championship while Houghton and Laurier square off in the first game.
