Surprising MUN sits on top of AUS

Memorial (7-6, 6-1) 85, UPEI (1-9, 1-6) 82… Overcoming a double digit second half deficit, MUN got a combined 21 fourth-quarter points from 6’9″ Vasilije Curcic and 6’2″ Daniel Gordon, including the go-ahead “and 1” from Curcic in the final minute to forge into first place with a gutsy road win at UPEI.  Curcic finished with 28 points (10 in the 4th), adding 8 rebounds while Gordon had 11 of his 24 points in the final frame, helping to clinch the game on the foul line for the Seahawks.  MUN shot 10-23 from 3 point land and 48% from the floor overall while reeling UPEI lost their 5th game in a row in advance of this afternoon’s rematch in Charlottetown.

ST. FX (8-8, 4-3) 91, Saint Mary’s (10-4, 4-3) 81… In a game with numerous lead changes, 6’7″ Kevin Bercy and 6’0″ Tristan Ross combined to lead a 10-2 run with 7 minutes remaining to lift X to an important win at home over Saint Mary’s.  With the score tied at 62, Bercy (22 points, 8 rebounds) had 5 points including a three while Ross added 6 points (20 points for the game) and X-Men resisted any further Huskie runs.  6’0″ Davonte Provo had a very productive 35 minute effort at the point for X with 13 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists helping to offset 21 points and 7 rebounds from 6’5″ Theon Reefer for the Huskies.

UNB (5-6, 4-3) 80, #7 Dalhousie (12-4, 5-2) 67…  Varsity Reds took the lead for good with a 12-1 second quarter run to lead by 12, later extending to as large as 16 in a comfortable home win over Dalhousie Tigers.  6’0″ Javon Masters had 22 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals for the Reds, including a momentum-breaking three early in the fourth quarter after the Tigers made their final serious run to get the game back to within 4.  6’1″ Chris Spurrell followed with another three and UNB had rebuilt their double digit lead, coasting into the important win.  Tigers played without the services of two starters including 6’6″ veteran Sven Stammberger (injured his shoulder in Acadia game) plus 6’6″ freshman sensation Alex Carson (groin).
