Brock 62, Windsor 60

6'6" Jordan Johnson's lay-in with 2.7 seconds left gave the Badgers an unlikely comeback win over the Lancers in St. Catharines.  Johnson took a fine entry pass from 6'1" Andrew Kraus and finished to give Brock their first lead since early in the game.  Brock scored the final 9 points of the game highlighted by a game-tying free throw from Kraus as the Lancers went cold in the face of strong Badger "d".

After Kraus tied the game by going 1-2 from the line with 24 seconds remaining, the Lancers committed a back-court violation, giving Brock the ball back and with the clock winding down, Kraus found Johnson ducking in about 2 feet from the rim and the scrappy forward faked and then laid the ball in.  Windsor had one final opportunity but 6'7" Andre Smyth's desperation 3 came off the back iron and Brock became the first team from the bottom 4 of the OUA West to defeat a top 4 team all season.

Brock again played with 6'6" Mark Gibson, who missed his fourth consecutive game with an ankle injury and there is no known timetable for his return.
