UPEI 84, Memorial 80 The Panthers awoke late in the third quarter, coming back from 10+ down in the first half to tie it with about 6 minutes left and went on to sweep the weekend series. Memorial shot the lights out in the first half but the Panthers picked it up defensively as the game progress, limiting Sea-hawks good looks and 6'6" Manock Lual (27 points on 10-13 shooting plus 10 rebounds) and 6'2" Jon Cooper (23 points) sparked the offense. With the victory, UPEI moves to 6-10 on the season with 16 points, 4 points ahead of seventh place Acadia. The Axemen have 7 games remaining while the Panthers have but 4 - all on the road. The two teams do not meet again this season. UPEI travels to UNB next weekend for a pair of two point games which are likely to be must wins for the Panthers.
Dalhousie 88, UNB 50 (4 point game) The Tigers grabbed 8 of a possible 8 points on the weekend and are now 10-5 with 36 points, a full 10 points ahead of second-place St. FX. With 5 games remaining, Dal must lose all of their remaining games and X must win all of their remaining games for X to maintain their long streak of first round byes at the AUS tournament. Dal jumped out to a quick 20 point lead early in the second quarter and coasted to an easy win over the weary V-Reds who had an emotional, last-second victory last night in Wolfville.
Saint Mary's and CBU were tied midway through the third quarter this afternoon.
