(WINDSOR, ON) – The St Clair men’s basketball team fell 82-78 to the Lambton Lions Friday night at the SportsPlex. St Clair was once again behind the eight ball early, trailing 22-12 after the opening quarter, and were down 14 points in the 2nd quarter.

But, the Saints used a 10-2 run to finish the 1st half, leaving them down by just six, 45-39, at the break.

Lambton seemed to gain control in the 3rd, extending their lead, but St Clair used a 14-5 run to start the 4th quarter to go up 69-68 with about 5 minutes left on the clock. The teams traded the lead for a few possessions until key turnovers and fouls by the Saints allowed Lambton to seize control in the final minute.

Point guard Charles Baskin scored a game-high 28 points to lead St Clair in the game. Lance Drummonds also reached double figures, scoring 14 points to go with 6 rebounds for the Saints.
