Cougars dominate “o” boards in comeback win over Guelph


Regina (2-6) 83, Guelph (2-1) 74… The Cougars dominated the second-half, primarily with their work on the offensive glass (21 “o” boards in all) to author a comeback win against Guelph as the RBC Brock Classic kicked off in St. Catharines.  6’2″ freshman Johneil Johnson, who was injured to start the season, was instrumental in the win with 17 points off the bench including 5 of his 8 boards on the offensive glass.  6’1″ guard Alex Igual added 11 points and 7 assists as the Cougars shot 47% in the second half alone including several put-backs after struggling at only 30% in the first half.  Apart from their difficulties on the defensive glass, the Gryphs, who played without regular rotation 6’6″ forward Kingslee D’Silva, hurt themselves going just 3 for 20 from three-point land.  Veteran Daniel Dooley had 13 points to lead Guelph, which got a nice lift off the bench from 6’6″ freshman Edmonton native Banky Alade with 10 points and 5 rebounds.  Guelph also started touted freshman guard Jordon Sobot (Burlington Nelson), who finished with 9 points.  Regina also got a nice contribution from a freshman, 6’4″ Carter Millar (Regina LeBoldus) who knocked down a pair of 3’s off the bench as the Cougars shot an efficient 8 for 25 (40%) from three point land.  Guelph now travels to Woodstock, ON for an afternoon game against University of Toronto Varsity Blues as both coaches (Chris O’Rourke and John Campbell) have a homecoming of sorts back to Oxford County.  Regina meets UQAM tomorrow at 1 PM ET as the Brock tournament continues.
