Gaels hand Badgers first loss


Storming back from a 14 point deficit, Queen’s authored what is arguably the biggest win in Head Coach Steph Barrie’s tenure, an 87-81 win over previously-undefeated Brock Badgers in Kingston.  Reserve guard Patrick Street had 8 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter while emerging 6’7″ swing forward Tanner Graham again was clutch with 13 of his 17 points in the second half to allow Queen’s to move to 4-1 in OUA league play.  6’2″ Suhkpreet Singh, the Gaels most experienced and best overall player, was also instrumental in the win – his late free throw gave the Gaels the lead for good in a game that featured numerous lead changes – and the slick guard finished with 18 points including 12 after halftime.  In all, Gaels shot 14 for 27 from the floor in the second half including 5/12 from downtown.

6’6″ Matt Marshall had 26 points and 10 boards to lead Brock which also got 22 points and 12 boards from Dani Elgadi.  The Badgers lose their first game of the season against CIS competition.

There is one game of note in the OUA this afternoon as U of T Varsity Blues travel to London to face Western Mustangs in a game that begins at 3 PM.
