Dalhousie (3-1) 75, Saint Mary’s (3-1) 47… Tigers held Huskies to 30% shooting and 6’9″ Ryall Stroud and 6’3″ Kash Lawrence combined to shoot 15 for 22 from the floor as Dalhousie avenged Wednesday night’s loss at the Homburg Center with a convincing home win. Tigers shot just 2-10 from downtown but found the inside game to their liking, shooting 55% overall from the floor led by their two high-quality posts. Tigers enjoyed a 38-28 advantage on the glass as Dal gets set to host St. FX on Thursday night in a 4 point game. Saint Mary’s will host UPEI and UNB next weekend.
UNB (2-2) 93, UPEI (1-3) 84... 6’0″ Javon Masters had another efficient 17 point, 7 rebound and 7 assist effort and Varsity Reds again got solid production from newcomers 6’8″ Stephon Smith (15 points on 6-11 shooting) and 6’4″ Jamaal Potopsingh (19 points on 8-12 shooting) as UNB shot 48.5% from the field in sweeping the Panthers, who played without injured 6’2″ Tyler Scott. UPEI stayed in the game ostensibly at the foul line, where they shot 46 free throws as UNB was whistled for 30 fouls in the game. 6’6″ Milorad Sedlarevic finished with a game-high 23 points for the Panthers while 6’8″ Dut Dut went 12 for 16 from the line and grabbed 6 offensive rebounds to help author an 18-point, 11-rebound double double. Both teams have a pair of games at Acadia and at Saint Mary’s next weekend.
St. FX (2-1) 97, Memorial (2-1) 75… 6’3″ Julius Antoine had five 3’s as part of his game-high 21 points as X jumped out to a 15-2 lead and were never seriously threatened in a dominating performance at home against the Sea-Hawks. Antoine started the game with back-to-back 3’s and then culminated the early run with another 3. Later, the slick veteran lefty from Thornhill gave X a 21 point lead with his 4th three of the half late in the second quarter. X shot 11-25 from downtown overall and clearly thus far, coach Steve Konchalski and staff have addressed a key area of concern with their efficient perimeter shooting. 6’7″ Kevin Bercy had 15 points and 10 rebounds and helped hold 6’9″ Vasilije Curcic to just 6 points. The teams meet again this afternoon in Antigonish.
Acadia (2-2) 95, Cape Breton (0-4) 76… Axemen jumped out to an early lead, shooting 12 for 23 from downtown as a team and had 6 players in double figures to sweep the weekend series over the Capers in Sydney. 6’0″ A.J. Simmons had 19 points off the bench to lead Acadia while 6’6″ Kenny Jean-Louis had 22 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists for Capers, still searching for their first victory of the season. Capers travel to Memorial for a pair of games next weekend while Acadia gets set to host UPEI and UNB next weekend.
