Men’s Basketball lose at home
On the back end of last Friday night’s double header the Isles faced the Montmorency Nomades. Abbott could not stop the Nomades attack and dug themselves into a 24 – 10 hole at the end of the first quarter. The second quarter was more promising for the Isles, as they outscored Montmorency 18-16, but were still trailing 40-28 at half-time. The Isles were competing in the last two quarters but poor shooting and too many quick shots contributed to the Isles’ defeat with the final score of 80-56.
