Badgers nip the Marauders Wednesday in Ontario –
The #6 Brock Badgers traveled only a short hop from St. Catharines up to Hamilton to face the previously unbeaten #3 McMaster Marauders … Brock 72 at McMaster 71 , also Guelph 94 at Windsor 85 – another road team with an impressive win, as the Gryphons knock off the highly regarded Lancers in Windsor.
On Thursday –
In the AUS – #7 Dalhousie 83 St. FX 63 …
and in Quebec it’s UQAM 80 McGill 77 in OT. We love the coffee-stained, cell-phone photo box score of the ‘upset’ from Thursday night in the ‘Q’ ! Nice work from Mark Wacyk’s terrific canhoopsca blog ! How do the Citadins shoot 35% and win over the favoured Redmen (41% FG) ? The 23 McGill turnovers (10 from UQAM) and 15 Citadins steals, plus 8 more boards give the winners 15 more shots.
