2011 AUS Playoffs: Dalhousie Tigers 2011 AUS basketball champions defeat Acadia Axemen

Dalhousie Tigers 78 – Acadia Axemen 47
The Dalhousie Tigers locked up the 2011 AUS Basketball Championship with a 79-42 victory over the Acadia Axemen as both teams prepare for the 2011 CIS Basketball Final 8 at the Metro Centre. The Tigers were the fresher team jumping all over the tired Acadia Axemen who played 3 games in 3 days.

Simon Farine earned 2011 AUS Tournament MVP honors, led the charge once again, although one could make a case for Joseph Schow, who was a tremendous throughout the season but even better in the post-season as the 5th-year senior wraps up his Tigers career. This marks the second time in the last three years that the Tigers have won the AUS crown.

Top 3 Performers
Dalhousie Tigers
S. Farine 24 Pts, 5 Reb, 6 Ast, 8 Stl
J. Schow 11 Pts, 10 Reb, 2 Blk

Up Next: Dalhousie will await the CIS seeding committee for the ranking at the 2011 Final 8 Event. The Tigers definitely deserve a #4, #5 ranking. A potential match-up with the Lakehead Thunderwolves. Acadia will have the tough task of playing the #1 seed.
