OUA Tonight

Ottawa 88, York 83  The Gee-Gees got an important road win, getting a 6-11 performance from beyond the arc by 6'3" freshman Johnny Berhanemeskel and dominating on the glass (19 offensive rebounds) to outlast the Lions.  York's 6'10" Stefan Haynes had another sterling performance against Ottawa with 28 points on 10-12 shooting including 3-3 from downtown.  6'6" Warren Ward had an outstanding 26 point/10 rebound performance for Ottawa, which evens their record at 9-9.

Toronto 87, Queen's 82  The Gaels saw their playoff hopes virtually die with a home loss to the Varsity Blues, who avenged an earlier defeat at the hands of Queen's.  6'6" Andrew Wasik had a career-high 26 points on 11-16 shooting and added 8 rebounds while fifth-year veteran point guard Anthony DeGiorgio had his career-high with 23 on 8-11 from the field in 39 minutes for Toronto.  6'2" Dan Bannister led the Gaels, 3-15, with 22 points. 

Carleton 86, Laurentian 55  Building leads as large as 35 in the second half, the Ravens held Laurentian sharpshooters Manny and Isiah Pasquale to a combined 6 for 26 from the field including 1 for 13 from downtown in drubbing the Vees.  6'6" Tyson Hinz had 21 points and 8 rebounds to lead Carleton, who held Laurentian to just 32% shooting overall.

The Voyageurs hold a 3 game lead over Queen's with 4 games remaining for each team.  Laurentian hosts Ottawa tomorrow night and while the Gaels host Ryerson.  Laurentian also faces RMC in Kingston next Friday before the two teams meet at Queen's next Saturday night, which could by then turn out to be a meaningless game.

Ryerson 106, RMC 55

OUA East Standings
Carleton 18-0
Toronto 13-5
Ottawa 9-9

Queen's 3-15
RMC 0-18

Waterloo 79, Lakehead 65  6'3" Tim Rossy continued his aggressive offensive play, leading all scorers with 26 points, eclipsing his career-high established just 2 weeks ago as the hometown Warriors held Lakehead to just 14 points in the final 16 minutes of play to keep themselves in the hunt for an OUA West playoff spot.  With Lakehead leading 51-46 and about 4 minutes gone in the third, 6'6" Alan Goodhoofd hit a turn around 15' jumper, starting a game-finishing 33-14 run for Waterloo.  The Warriors win raises them into a 4 way tie for fourth place with Mac, Brock and Western at 8-9.  Just one game behind are the resurgent Guelph Gryphons at 7-10.  Lakehead is now just one game ahead of Laurier with the Golden Hawks holding the tiebreaker.

If you use the words "payback" and "revenge" in the same sentence with Queen''re not a top 10 team.

Did I read this right?
Lakehead gave up 33 points in the final SIX MINUTES of the game?
Holy crap!
That's 5 and a half points per minute!
The T-Wolves blew a great opportunity to put distance between themselves and Laurier.
A Lakehead sweep of Waterloo pretty much meant first place was theirs.
Major fail on their part.

Considering Waterloo scored only 27 points in the entire fourth, you did not read that right.

"Only" 27 points in the entire fourth while allowing just eleven is still pretty much a beat down, n'est-ce pas?
That works out to 108-44 over 40 minutes so the Wolves got rolled in the last quarter.
Not to blame Mark for my confusion, but
I misread his summary...I thought he wrote 4 minutes gone in the fourth quarter, rather than the third, which, obviously makes a difference.
Still, it was a poor performance by Lakehead late in the game and they may yet rue the fact they let this one slip away.
