Late 11-0 run lifts Cougars over Winnipeg


In the only CIS game last night, Pickering High School’s Tull brothers combined to score the game’s final 11 points in the last 2 minutes to lift Regina to a see-saw home win over Winnipeg (see video highlights by clicking here).  The Wesmen had rallied back from a 7 point deficit to take a one-point lead late but Jonathan Tull’s basket allowed to Regina to re-take the lead and then, after a turnover by Wesmen Jelane Pryce – who return from an earlier injury (more on this and the game from Wayne Thomas’s wonderful Canada West site) Brandon Tull scored and then later Jonathan added an old fashioned three-point play to seal it.

Pryce was on fire early, scoring 12 of Winnipeg’s first 14 points of the game as Wesmen jumped out to a five point lead as the 6’5″ forward hit his first 4 shots en route to a game-high 25 points and 12 rebounds.  However he made only 6 of last 17 shots and went 3 for 8 from the free throw line while dealing with a hand injury.

Jonathan Tull also had 25 for Regina as the team’s shot a combined 6 for 35 from downtown in a game with 39 turnovers.  Box Score 

The team’s meet again tonight while Alberta visits Calgary on a light Saturday evening Canada West schedule.

At 5 PM ET today in Montreal, Laval Rouge et Or visit McGill Redmen in the final RSEQ game of calendar 2015.

Here is an article from the Regina Leader-Post on Ajax, ON native Aaron McGowan who played 20 minutes last night without scoring.
