Concordia Stingers survive Tigers, face X-Men in 2011 Rod Shoveller Finals

In a sloppy and turnover filled affair, the Concordia Stingers held tournament host Dalhousie Tigers scoreless for over four minutes in a key stretch of the fourth quarter to earn a close 79-75 victory and advance to the Finals of the 2011 Rod 2011 Rod Shoveller Finals.

The Stingers led 44-37 at the break but failed to put way the unranked and rebuilding Tigers.

Freshmen Ritchie Kanza Mata (Toronto, ON) poured in a game-high 24 points and helped the Tigers take a 10 point lead at 69-59 with six minutes left in the game.

Concordia Head Coach John Dore called a timeout and his troops responded with their trademark full court pressure and regained the lead as Jerome Blake and Decee Krah connected on back-to-back three-pointers to spark the Stingers comeback.

Krah racked up 19 points and Kyle Desmarais fought early foul trouble to finish with 17 points for the Stingers.
