RSEQ: Cold third-quarter sinks Gaiters at Laval

Laval (2-1) 74, Bishop’s (0-3) 64... 6’5″ Alexandre Leclerc had 8 of his game-high 20 points during a third-quarter 17-5 run in the first 7 1/2 minutes that pushed Rouge et Or to a 10 point home win against the Gaiters.  Bishop’s made just one field goal in the 3rd, going 1-13 from the floor including missing their final 10 shots as Laval built a double digit lead.  Laval also welcomed back 6’1″ guard Vladimir Thomas from the injury list and the impact guard immediately contributed, knocking down 3 of 4 3’s to finish with 11 points in just 14 minutes while reserve 6’0″ guard Yoann Folquet continues to provide quality back-court depth with another solid 14 point, 5 rebound, 4 assist effort in 25 minutes.  Bishop’s, which got 16 points from 6’5″ sophomore Abdul Kamane, did get the deficit down to just 5 with about 4 minutes left to play but 22 turnovers and a tough third quarter were key elements to send Gaiters to 0-3 in the RSEQ.

In the only remaining RSEQ action this weekend, UQAM, undefeated at 2-0, travels across town to face Concordia Stingers in a 4 PM ET start at the BeeHive.
