QUBL Matchup on tonight's CIS docket
The reeling Concordia Stingers, losers of 3 of their last 5, hope to push back toward the top of the Quebec league as they visit winless Bishop's in Lennoxville tonight at 8 PM in a game that can be seen on SSN Canada. Stingers 6'2" guard Kyle Desmarais has led the Stingers in scoring in 9 of the 10 league games to date and had 24 points the last time these teams met a couple of weeks ago, a five point victory for Concordia. The Stingers defeated Bishop's by 9 in their last meeting in Lennoxville before the holidays. 6'3" Evens Laroche has struggled with ankle injuries for the past 2-3 weeks and his health is critical to the depth of the Stingers. Bishop's plays their first game in about 2 weeks and only their fourth after the holidays, their last game being the 5 point loss at Concordia. 6'2" sophomore Onnex Blackwood leads the Gaiters in scoring at 13.3 ppg while 6'7" lefty third-year forward Tim Hunter averages 13.0 ppg and is a legitimate three point threat for Bishop's.
