Gryphon hoops men edged by McGill

MONTREAL – The McGill Redmen collected six points – four on free throws – in the final minute to slip by the Guelph Gryphons 81-77 Friday at the UQAM men’s basketball Olga Hrycak Holiday Tournament.

The Gryphs had pulled even with McGill at 75-75 on Banky Alade’s jumper with 1:18 to go. The tie lasted 16 seconds until Alex Paquin hit on a free throw to put McGill ahead for good. Paquin added to the lead when he drained a jumper with 30 seconds to go and Avery Cadogan’s free throw for McGill with 18 seconds to go came close to sealing the deal.

Guelph’s Malcolm Glanville sank two free throws seven seconds later to cut the gap to two points, but Paquin completed the scoring with two more free throws three seconds later.

The Gryphs led 15-11 at the end of the first quarter before McGill rallied for a 38-34 lead at halftime. The Redmen were up 61-56 at the end of the third quarter.

Tommy Yanchus led the Gryphs with 17 points while Rasheed Weekes had 11, Glanville 10 and Alade nine.

Sam Jenkins had 24 points for McGill and was followed by Cadogan with 16, Paquin 12, Noah Daoust 10 and Anthony Fisiru nine.

The Gryphs are to play the host UQAM Citadins Saturday at 6 p.m. and the Brandon Bobcats Sunday at 12 p.m.

UQAM defeated Brandon 97-92 in Friday’s other game in the tournament.

Guelph is 3-7 in league play while McGill is 3-2, UQAM 2-3 and Brandon 2-8.

The Gryphs are to return to OUA league play Friday with an 8 p.m. game at the Guelph Gryphons Athletics Centre against the Lakehead Thunderwolves (2-8).
