Men's Hoops Tours Quebec City, Beats Laval On Day Two
Aug. 24, 2014
SAINT-AUGUSTIN-DE-DESMAURES, Quebec - Loyola University Maryland men's basketball took its longest day trip of its 2014 Canadian Tour on Sunday, more than two hours northeast to visit the one of the oldest settlements in North America.
After a team lunch following the trip to Quebec's provincial capital, the Greyhounds visited the National Assembly of Quebec building, the famous Chateau Frontenac hotel and the Saint-Laurent River waterfront.
Loyola then traveled to nearby Saint-Augustin-De-Desmaures and Seminaire Saint-Francois to face Universite Laval in the evening. The Greyhounds defeated the Rogue et Or (Red and Gold), a team that advanced to the Canadian Interuniversity Sport Final 8 Playoffs last year, 90-74.
The Greyhounds never trailed in the game, jumping out to a 9-0 lead, and a balanced scoring and rebounding effort helped them maintain an advantage throughout the entire contest. Ten Greyhounds scored seven or more points, and nine had three or more rebounds.
Tyler Hubbard led Loyola in scoring for the second time in three contests, tallying 16 points to go with three steals in just 18 minutes of action. Eric Laster added 14 points and tied Chancellor Barnard for team-high honors with six rebounds. Cam Gregory, Josh Forney and Andre Walker each scored eight, while Nick Gorski and Franz Rassman had seven apiece. Denzel Brito had five assists, and Walker added four.

Monday will be a day off from competition for the Greyhounds who will tour several sites of Montreal including Saint Joseph Oratory, Mount Royal and Old Montreal.
They will be back in action on Tuesday night when they play at McGill University.
