This week in Stingers Briefs, we recap a wild Saturday afternoon of Concordia basketball against McGill University.
The Concordia Stingers men’s basketball team won their second straight game over the McGill Redmen on Saturday afternoon, winning 68-57 over their crosstown rivals at the G. Donald Love Competition Hall at McGill University.
Concordia was winning for most of the contest, and was led by the scoring of Jaleel Webb and Ken Beaulieu who scored 21 and 20 points respectively. Six of Beaulieu’s 20 points came off dunks, all in the third quarter.
The victory came two days after the Stingers defeated McGill, ranked as the fourth best team in Canadian university basketball, in double overtime at the Concordia Gymnasium on Thursday night. With their victory, Concordia are now in first place in the Réseau du Sport Étudiant du Québec conference.
Meanwhile, the Concordia Stingers women’s basketball team went to overtime against the McGill Martlets, but they couldn’t come through with a victory against the second best team in Canadian university basketball, losing 72-70 at the G. Donald Love Competition Hall.
The Martlets were led by forward Alex Kiss-Rusk, who scored 28 points in the victory. Concordia’s leading scorer was Marilyse Roy-Viau, who scored 23 in the loss.
Stingers forward Richelle Gregoire scored a game-tying three point shot with 19 seconds left to play, forcing overtime. Both teams kept it close in the extra period, but the Martlets outscored the Stingers 8-6, en route to a victory.
Concordia falls to 2-8 on the season, while McGill has a record of 7-1.
