MBB | Voyageurs Cap Undefeated Weekend with Win Over Lions

The Voyageurs men's basketball team finished up their weekend on the road visiting the York Lions who were looking for their first win since November. After a 23-12 first frame in favour of the Voyageurs, the Lions responded by increasing their tempo in the following three quarters making it a competitive match until the final minutes of gameplay. Despite York's battle, the #7 Voyageurs once again came out victorious earning their 15th win of the season with a final score of 89-80.


The Voyageurs shot 42% from the field as a team to go along with another dominating performance on the boards which continues to be a strength for the team, this time out-rebounding their opponent 47-26.


Top performer for Laurentian was second year guard Kadre Gray who was one assist shy of a triple-double with 23 points, 13 rebounds and 9 assists. Another solid contribution came from senior forward Nelson Yengue who earned a double-double with his 16 points and 11 rebounds. 


Top scorer for the Lions was Gianmarco Luciani with 26 points. 


The Voyageurs will have a few days of rest from competition before they face-off with the Nipissing University Lakers this Wednesday in North Bay. Tip off is 8 pm.
