The Johnnies downed McGill University team, 90-55, and then beat the University of Quebec at Montreal (UQAM) in the nightcap, 104-62.
“Our conditioning is not what you want it to be yet, but I thought our guys got after it and really competed,” said head coach Norm Roberts. “We got off to a slow start this afternoon, but then our defense picked up. I liked the play of a lot of our guys. All of our guys gave us good minutes at different times.”
Against McGill in the weekend opener, the Red Storm used a 40-6 second quarter to erase an early eight-point deficit. Malik Boothe and D.J. Kennedy scored 10 points apiece, while returnees Quincy Roberts, Paris Horne (pictured) and newcomers Malik Stith and Justin Brownlee chipped in with nine points, and Sean Evans added eight with seven boards.
