Gee-Gees dominate in double digit win over UNB

Their three-point game back to what observers have grown to expect, uOttawa Gee-Gees jumped out to a double digit first half lead, held leads of 20 or more for much of the second half in defeating the scrappy UNB Varsity Reds 105-96.  The score is a bit misleading as Ottawa led by 20 with just over 2 minutes remaining in the fourth as 5 Gee-Gees hit double figures.

After forging the early 10+ point lead, Gee-Gees substituted liberally as all twelve players who dressed saw time and 10 different guys scored, led by 6’1″ guard Mike L’Africain who had 18 points and 8 assists.  6’3″ Caleb Agada finished 3 for 6 from downtown, adding 17 points and 8 boards as Ottawa shot 17 for 41 (42%) from the three for the game.  A pair of valued substitutes – both of who struggled in the first two games of the tournament – shone today as 6’2″ guard Medhi Tihani went a perfect 3 for 3 from downtown to finish with 15 points while forward Matt Plunkett added 14 points.  uOttawa’s center duo of Nathan McCarthy, who battled foul trouble and Brody Maracle (13 points on 6-7 shooting) combined for 19 points.

One of the better young shooters/players in the AUS, 6’3″ Jesse Kendall, was a difficult check all afternoon, finishing with a game-high 27 points while Javon Masters had a quiet 25 on 9 of 13 shooting.  Matt Daley added 16 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists as both teams finished at 2-1 for the tournament.

While the Gee-Gees allowed UNB to shoot 53% from the floor, Ottawa did dominate the glass, allowing just 4 offensive rebounds.

The final game of the Laval tournament is on as we speak with Calgary and the host Rouge et Or facing off.
