Undermanned against UC-Riverside, Citadins plan to bounce back vs. Towson

It was a rather inauspicious beginning to the coaching career of long-time U-Sports/CIS alumnus Mario Joseph last night in Thetford as his Citadins took it on the chin against visiting UC-Riverside.  However, upon closer examination, UQAM played without arguably their four top players as 6’4″ RSEQ All-Star Greishe Clerjuste, 6’1″ Misi Boye and 6’5″ Christian Kadima, regulars from last season’s rotation, did not dress.  As well, 6’0″ Charles Miller, who has proven to be an explosive scorer but who missed much of last season with a terrible knee injury, also did not play.

All 4 are expected to suit up on Sunday when the Citadins return home to Montreal to face visiting Towson Tigers.  While last night’s game was difficult for coach Joseph in most respects, one of the bright lights was the play of 6’1″ freshman guard Karim Sabban (Vanier College), who committed to UQAM in mid-January after averaging 4.3 points per game in about 19 minutes last season for the Cheetahs, who finished 10-4 in CEGEP league play before bowing out in the championship game against Montmorency.

UQAM hosts Towson tomorrow afternoon at 3 PM ET in Montreal.
