CBU 86 MUN 103

 

(St.John's, NL)- The Cape Breton Capers (2-7) fell to the MUN Seahawks on Monday afternoon with a 103-86 loss in St.John's NL.  

 

After the first two quarters, Memorial held the lead buoyed by their fantastic shooting from the field at 61%. The Capers looked to lock in for the second half, cut down on Memorial's transition buckets and wide-open looks while boosting their own efficiency from the floor, which stood at a 24% from the field and 17% from deep.

Despite their best efforts, the Capers could not manage to keep Memorial from converting, as they continued to shoot well from the floor. The second half was more of the same; The Sea-Hawks having good offensive success, and the Capers struggling to create defensive stops.

For CBU, Martin Campbell (Upper Marlboro, MD) provided much of the offense with 21 points; the starters also created most of the offense, but Paul Watson (Mississauga, ON) poured in a healthy 17-point game off the bench.

The CAPERS will look to bounce back when they host the UNB Varsity Reds on Friday at 8pm at the Sullivan Field House.
