York 73, Ottawa 68

The Lions engineered a big fourth quarter comeback, finally taking the lead in the final 2 minutes and then hanging on as 6'6" Warren Ward's off-balance attempt at a 3 with about 2 seconds remaining slammed off the glass.  Earlier, with the Gee-Gees down 2, Ward drove the lane, sliced between 2 defenders but missed and David Tydale rebounded with 8 seconds left and was fouled.  Tyndale then made 1 of 2 at the foul line to give Ottawa one last chance at a tie but Ward could not convert.  York moves into third place in the OUA East with Laurentian down 30 late at Carleton while the Gee-Gees drop to 5-8.
