Har­vey Helps Gaiters Come Back On Stingers In The Hive

Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Mon­tréal

Har­vey had a dou­ble-dou­ble to help the Bishop’s Univer­sity Gaiters find their way back from a 16 point deficit to beat the Con­cor­dia Stingers 66-60 in RSEQ men’s bas­ket­ball ac­tion in Mon­treal on Satur­day af­ter­noon.

Har­vey (Saint-Bruno, Que.) scored 11 points and grabbed 13 re­bounds to help the Gaiters cap­ture their first win of the sea­son. He was 5-9 shoot­ing from the floor in 26 min­utes.

Bishop’s started out slow as Con­cor­dia scored the first 10 points unan­swered and led 25-13 af­ter the first 10 min­utes. The Gaiters fought back steadily to trail 33-26 at the half. Ab­dul Ka­mane (Mon­treal) made seven free throws in the third frame to put the Gaiter within five. Ka­mane was 8-10 from the char­ity stripe, had 10 points and five re­bounds in 32 min­utes on the floor.

Early in the fourth quar­ter, Jona Ber­millo (Mon­treal) hit a three point shot for the Gaiters to tie the game at 48. That was fol­lowed by a jumper by Yassin Naji (Lunel, France) to give the visi­tors their first lead. Con­cor­dia’s Jaleel Webb (Pier­re­fonds, Que.) re­claimed it with a long three pointer matched by the Gaiters’ Peter Weston (Que­bec City) a pos­ses­sion later. Back-to-back threes by Ber­millo and a free throw from Har­vey put the Gaiters out of reach. Bishop’s won 66-60 over Con­cor­dia to tally their first win of the sea­son.

For Con­cor­dia, Webb scored 17 points and was 5-7 from be­yond the arc. Sch­nei­ders Suf­frard (Mon­treal) put up 13 points and had seven re­bounds.

Ber­millo led the Gaiters with 19 points and added four re­bounds and four steals to his stat-line in 32 min­utes. Weston scored 12 points in 35 min­utes.

The Gaiters are off for the hol­i­day break but will re­turn to ac­tion on Jan. 7, 2016 at UQAM and Jan. 9, 2016 ver­sus UQAM at home. Both games are set to start at 8 p.m.
