Leclerc rescues Laval with 3 point barrage

Laval (1-2) 84, Acadia (0-3) 76… 6’6″ Alexandre Leclerc went 7 for 10 from beyond the arc including the go-ahead three with just 3 minutes remaining as Laval came from 18 points down to knock off the Axemen on the final day of the Stu Aberdeen Classic.  Leclerc, who went just 3 for 11 from downtown in the first two games of the tournament, exploded during a 17-2 run bridging halftime that got Rouge et Or back in it and then had 9 of his game-high 21 points in the fourth to carry his team to the victory.

Acadia dropped in five of their first 10 threes and led comfortably at 44-28 before 6’1″ Vladimir Thomas (17 points, 3-5 3’s), 5’11” Karl Demers-Belanger (13 points, 4 assists) and Leclerc began to heat up from the perimeter.  Axemen had all 5 starters in double figures but made just 3 of their final 19 from beyond the arc.  6’5″ Kyle Arsenault led Acadia with 19 points on 5-11 shooting from 3.

Dalhousie 102, Holland College 92… In a rare shoot-out at DalPlex, 5’11” Ritchie Kanza-Mata flirted with a triple-double:  11 points, 10 assists and 6 steals as the Tigers pulled away in the second half, taking advantage of 29 Holland turnovers.  6’6″ Alex Carson made the first start of his Tigers career memorable with 16 points including 4 3’s as all 5 starters hit in double figures led by 6’5″ Sven Stammberger’s 24 points.  A pair of 6’6″ import transfers:  Trenity Burdine (Reading, PA/Siena College) and Roosevelt Whyley (Bahamas, Ranger (Tx.) Junior College, led the way for Holland with 33 points and 27 points respectively.

In the final game of the Eric Garland tournament, Maine Fort-Kent sent host UNB Varsity Reds to their third consecutive loss of the weekend, coming back to win 85-81.
