Gryphon hoops women top NCAA Division III squad in preseason play

GUELPH – The Guelph Gryphons made it two wins in as many university women’s basketball preseason outings Saturday night as they dropped the St. John Fisher Cardinals 73-46 at the Mitchell Athletics Centre.

The Gryphs pulled away in the second half following a slow start. The hosts trailed 13-10 at the end of the first quarter, but led 25-22 at halftime although the visitors hit a three-pointer at the buzzer.

Scoring details were not available.

The Gryphs are to host the Trine University Thunder of Angola, Ind., in a preseason match Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Mitchell Athletics Centre. Like St. John Fisher, Trine is an NCAA Division III squad.
