OUA East Tonight

Ottawa 91, Laurentian 80  The Gee-Gees broke open a tight game with an 11-4 run bridging the third and fourth quarters and later 6'3" Johnny Berhanemeskel took over with a three and then a nice feed to freshman Vikas Gill for another 3 as Ottawa extended to an 11 point lead with 3 minutes remaining to capture an important road win in Sudbury.  Gee-Gees athletic three-man Chris Anderson also had a big 3 and was active all night as Ottawa's superior depth wore down the Vees, who committed several turnovers late and ran into foul trouble.  Ottawa maintained a tight lead all evening despite losing 6'6" Warren Ward to an ankle injury midway through the first quarter but the Vees did take a 59-57 lead on a three by 6'0" Manny Pasquale but back-to-back 3's by Anderson and freshman guard Mike L'Africian gave Ottawa the lead for good in the third.  Numerous fouls were called and both coaches were assessed "t's" in the fourth but the Gee-Gees moved to 5-4 on the season in advance of meeting York Lions tomorrow night in Toronto.  Laurentian entertains #1 Carleton Ravens tomorrow night.

Carleton 90, York 54 Final  Ravens shot the ball uncharacteristically sluggishly in the first half but did hold the Lions scoreless for almost 8 minutes from the end of the first quarter in extending to a 32-11 lead with 5 1/2 to go in the half.  The Lions, who played very hard all night, cut it to 18 by halftime but a pair of 3's by reserve Tommy Scrubb made the lead over 30 and Carleton coasted from there.

Ryerson 78, Queen's 50  The Rams took a huge second quarter lead and coasted from there as 11 guys played more than 10 minutes for Rye led by Jordan Gauthier's 18 points.
