Badgers – behind Elgadi’s 36 – & Marauders remain undefeated

Brock (4-0) 95, Concordia (3-1) 78… 6’7″ Dani Elgadi exploded for 36 points on 15-20 shooting as the Badgers captured the Concordia Classic championship with a decisive win over the host Stingers.  Badgers shot a tidy 9 for 22 from downtown and 55% overall from the floor to build leads as large as 22 in the fourth quarter to win going away in what was their fifth game in less than 5 days – all victories.  6’6″ freshman Daniel Cayer had another stat-sheet filling effort with 9 points and 10 rebounds and the Badgers again got 25 solid minutes at the point from 5’11” Tyler Brown, who missed Friday’s game and did not start this afternoon but continues to show the steadiness as Brock’s lead guard.  6’4″ Ken Beaulieu had 19 to lead Concordia but missed all 7 of his attempts from downtown while 6’2″ sharpshooting freshman Nicky Noble added 14 points and 6 rebounds as Stingers lost for the first time this season against CIS competition.  In the other game, Nipissing got 22 points from Marcus Lewis and 6’7″ Justin Shaver added 15 points, 10 rebounds as the Lakers (2-3) salvaged one game from the weekend pulling away in the second half to defeat Cape Breton (0-4) which got 13 points from 6’4″ Kyle Hankins.

McMaster (5-0) 76, Dalhousie (2-1) 70… Marauders remained undefeated with another strong effort, especially out of the gate when Mac hit 4-6 3’s to establish an early lead and hold off a couple of Tiger runs to win at home.  6’4″ Rohan Boney led the way with 17 points and 7 rebounds while 6’7″ Connor Gilmore had 16 points and 9 boards.  Marauders got strong production from 6’3″ fourth-year wing Elliot Ormond, a local product from Hamilton Cathedral who redshirted last season, who made all 5 of his shots including a key 3 mid-way through the third quarter that helped give Marauders a 14 point lead at 57-43.  Tigers had one run remaining, getting the game back to 6 with 3 minutes remaining but 6’8″ Matt Quiring had back-to-back buckets and Mac went 5 for 6 from the line to clinch it.  6’3″ Kash Lawrence worked hard inside all night, finishing 9 for 14 for 20 points while 6’6″ Sven Stammberger added 19 for Dal which shot just 5-19 from 3 and was outrebounded rather handily.

Laurier (3-2) 101, Brandon (0-2) 76… The Golden Hawks blew the game open with a dominant 35-10 fourth quarter run to win going away in what had been a tight game through 3 quarters.

UQAM 72, Stevens Institute of Technology (NCAA DIII) 61… Citadins shook off a sluggish start as 6’0″ Charles Miller led the way with 13 points and 5 assists, leading 4 players in double figures.  6’11” Yassin Debache continues to earn meaningful minutes and be impactful on the defensive end with 4 blocks to go with 13 rebounds and 9 points.  UQAM next travels to Waterloo for the Naismith tournament which begins Thursday night.
