Saint Mary's 96, Acadia 80

The Axemen held 6'1" Joey Haywood in reasonable check but could not deal with 6'4" Torey Fassett who had 29 points and 10 rebounds, leading the Huskies to an important home victory at the Tower in Halifax.  6'6" Owen Klassen continued his dominating offensive performances, going off for 35 points while 6'3" Anthony Sears played through an injury sustained last weekend and finished with 24 for Acadia, which again played without 6'6" starting forward Justin Boutilier.  Saint Mary's got on the glass for 20 offensive rebounds and shot 54% for the game using a series of transition runouts to get easy scores at the other end.  Huskies jumped out to a nice lead in the second but Acadia got it back to 3 on a couple of occasions before Saint Mary's pulled away in the fourth.

Acadia next plays a week from tonight at UPEI while the Huskies host UNB this coming Sunday afternoon.
