Graham Construction Shootout Day 2 Recap
Game 1: Regina 85 – Concordia 79
(By: Cougars Sports Information)
The University of Regina’s men’s basketball team led at halftime and after three quarters, but couldn’t hang on for the win as the Cougars lost 85-79 to Concordia on Friday night in the second game of the Graham Shootout in Saskatoon.
It was a one-possession game as late as with three minutes left in the game, but a quick 8-1 run by Concordia over the next 90 seconds – including a pair of three-point daggers by Jalel Webb – essentially put the game out of reach.
Ricardo Monge had a team-high 19 points and was one of five Concordia players to score in double figures. Ken Beaulieu scored 15 points, Webb finished with 14, Michael Fosu had 13, and Schneiders Suffrard added 12 off the bench.
The Cougars take on the host Huskies on Saturday night, while the Stingers battle the Lancers.
