Gee-Gees men's basketball

The men’s basketball team opened their regular season with a big test on Friday night at Montpetit Hall. The Gees faced the No. 6 ranked program in the country, the Wilfred Laurier Golden Hawks, in what promised to be a heated affair.

“That’s why you come here. You want to be able to play against the number-one team in the country, you want to play in an environment like this in front of 10,000 people.” —Brandon Robinson, Gee-Gees fifth-year guard.

“We’ve got a young team, so we’ve really got to hold it down in the first quarter, and if we can come out of that alive we have a shot.” — James Derouin, Gee-Gees head men’s basketball coach on the upcoming game vs. Carleton.

The game got off to a quick start. Less than 15 seconds in, U of O guard Gage Sabean opened up the scoring on a jump-shot, prompting an immediate response from Guelph to tie it 20 seconds later.
