St. FX 93, Saint Mary's 92

6'5" Jeremy Dunn's 3 with 5 seconds remaining culminated a game-ending 6-0 X run in the final minute to lift the X-Men to a dramatic one-point victory over the Huskies at the Tower in Halifax.  In an exciting affair in which both teams flashed their athleticism, Saint Mary's jumped out to an early 29-16 lead as the game featured 4 early dunks and got the crowd into things almost from the beginning.  Dunn was instrumental in getting the game back to within 5 by halftime but the Huskies took off on an 11-1 run in the first 3 minutes of the second half to lead by 15 again and held an 8 point leading heading to the fourth.  The X-Men then went to a zone and after getting the game back to 9, X had a 14-7 run to get it to 2 with 2 minutes left.  But Joey Haywood got going again, setting up the 5 point lead with a minute left before Dunn became a hero.  More in tomorrow's posts.
