CBU 68 DAL 77
Sydney, NS – The CAPERS were unable to breakdown the Dalhousie Tigers defence on Sunday afternoon at the Sullivan Fieldhouse. Dalhousie held the CAPERS to just 68 points. The Tigers were able to take advantage of their deep bench and outlasted the CAPERS to sweep the weekend series. Alex Carson (15), Sascha Kappos (14) and Jordan Brathwaite (13) all scored in double digits for the visitors. The Tigers had better shooting percentages across the board, shootings 46.7% from the field, 44.4% from 3-point land and 72.2% from the charity stripe. The CAPERS were led by Ibrahim Gosselin-Diawara (Longuiel, QC) with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Osman Omar (Mississauga, ON) and Reuben Edwards (Silver Springs, MD) each had 14 points in the loss.
Turning point – The CAPERS battled back in the 4th quarter to cut DAL's lead down to 5 with two and half minutes left to play but Edwards missed a 3-pointer that would have got the CAPERS within 2. DAL was able to convert on the foul line down the stretch to seal the victory.
