Men’s Basketball Outscore Niagara
- Submitted by

Windsor, ON – The St. Clair College Men’s Basketball team salvaged a weekend split and bounced back from Friday’s double overtime loss with a 108-101 victory over nationally ranked Niagara College (Welland) at the SportsPlex Saturday afternoon.  With the win the Saints evened their record to 3-3 in the OCAA’s West Division.  

St. Clair was dialed in from the start opening a 32-22 advantage after the opening quarter.  Niagara responded well and tied the game before St. Clair recovered for a slim 53-49 lead going into the half.  The Saints stretched that into an 81-71 cushion entering the fourth quarter and although Niagara made it a 6-point ball game (103-97) in the final minute the result was in hand.  St. Clair made it count from the line in this game converting 87% as opposed to Niagara who only managed 63% from the charity stripe. 

David Gomez Jr. (Pontiac, MI) had another strong game scoring 32 points and fashioned 7 assists to help teammate Jalen Sykes (Redford, MI) score 30 points to go with 10 rebounds in his double-double performance.  Nik Veigli (Cottam, ON/Essex District) had one of his best games of the season with an efficient 11 points off the Saints bench adding 4 assists. 

Niagara’s Van Hutchinson Jr. (Nassau, Bahamas) scored a game high 56 points and added 13 rebounds in a losing cause.  

The St. Clair Men’s Basketball team continues their regular season schedule Wednesday when they visit Lambton College (Sarnia) at 8:00pm.
