Friday Night Summary

QUBL  Laval 72, McGill 66  Rouge et Or's athleticism was too much for the Redmen tonight as 6'3" J.F. Beaulieu-Mahieux had 15 and 6'6" Etienne Labrecque added 16 to give Laval some first-place cushion.  6'3" Simon Bibeau, 6'1" Olivier Bouchard and 6'8" Greg Gause combined to go 4 for 28 for the Redmen.

OUA East  Toronto 71, York 58  The Blues avenged a 14 point loss to the Lions two weeks ago with a sterling defensive effort, timely shooting and only 5 turnovers all evening.  Toronto's zone generally stymied the Lions, who went 6-20 from downtown (5 for 11 for 5'10" David Tyndale).  6'5" Alex Hill hit back-to-back 3's mid way through the third quarter to allow the Blues to grab a 9 point lead which they never relinquished.  6'1" Justin Holmes hit several big 3's and led Toronto with 19 points while steady 6'6" Drazen Glizic appears all the way back from an injured ankle, getting 16 points.  Toronto had a tough time with dynamic 6'10" Dejan Kravic, who had 21 points and 15 rebounds but the Blues zone, transition "d", excellent offensive decision making and ability to take care of the ball were enough.  At 11-5, the Blues are comfortably in second place in the East.

Ottawa 71, Queen's 41  Just like Wednesday night vs. Carleton, the Gee-Gees erupted early but tonight they continued to extend, basically clinching a playoff spot by smacking the Golden Gaels.  Ottawa led 42-14 at halftime and got 18 from 6'6" Warren Ward and 14 and 10 for 6'9" Louis Gauthier.

Ryerson 84, Laurentian 70  The Rams got a comfortable win over the reeling Voyageurs who tonight played without 6'6" Mike Hull, out with a back injury.

OUA West   Lakehead 73, Windsor 65  The Wolves had double digit leads and got another nice effort from 6'1" Jamie Searle in taking the first of two vs. the Lancers in Sudbury.  6'3" Isaac Kuon had 19 points but shot only 6-25. 

Much thanks to the U of T athletic department for the use of their stellar computing facilities and the solid refreshments.

shame about Hull...he went so long without any issues this season; tough break for him; the game showed how much he was desperately missed (although Serresse had a huge start for LU)

Good Lord!
Carleton 101 RMC 24.....
It was 29-2 after one quarter and 59-7 at the half.
Suffice it to say, this game was every bit the awful mismatch the final score indicates,
The box score reads like a horror show, with stats like a 55-12 advantage in rebounds.
Despite an average of only 14 minutes playing time for its starting 5, the Ravens built an enormous lead very quickly.
The second half, it seemed Carleton was trying not to run up the score, taking each possession deep into the shot clock.
But the end result was like all other games for RMC, a thorough trouncing at the hands of their opponent.
When, oh when, will common sense prevail at the RMC athletic department?
Please, for everyone's sake, apply for membership in the OCAA and leave the OUA ASAP.
Stop pretending RMC can successfully compete at the universally level when it is so excruciatingly obvious to all that it simply a lost cause.
