Saint Mary’s and Dalhousie treated basketball fans at the Scotiabank Centre to an overtime thriller on Friday night.
Kemar Alleyne scored nine of his game-high 19 points in the five-minute extra frame and was a perfect 4-for-4 at the free throw line as the unbeaten Huskies slipped past the Tigers 73-68 in the second game of an Atlantic university doubleheader dubbed the Varsity Showdown.
The Dal and SMU women’s teams tipped off earlier with the Tigers pulling out a 78-58 victory.
In the men’s tilt, Johneil Johnson came off the bench to score 13 points, including a layup with 17 seconds left in the fourth quarter to knot the score at 60-all. Johnson had a chance to win it in regulation after picking up a steal on Dal’s next possession. He missed a layup at the buzzer.
Brent Martindale also scored 13 points for the U Sports No. 5 Huskies, who improve to 6-0.
Alex Carson collected 18 points for the Tigers (4-3), hosts of the U Sports Final 8 championship in March. Sascha Kappos added a dozen points and Mike Shoveller scored 10.
The teams now head into a six-week holiday break. The Huskies’ next AUS regular season game is Jan. 4 when they host St. Francis Xavier. The Tigers visit Acadia on Jan. 5.
In the women’s game:
Tigers 78, Huskies 58: Dalhousie outscored Saint Mary’s 21-9 in the third quarter and then cruised to victory.
Sophie Gaube tallied a game-high 24 points for the Tigers (3-4). Robertha Charles had 19 points.
Dal led by four at the half and then went on a 17-4 run to start the third quarter.
Arianna Macias answered with 23 points for the winless Huskies (0-7).
