82

 

1-3

Poor free throw shooting really hurts the Gryphon’s.  Next two games are important for this young team’s confidence.

Guelph

 

Ryerson

 

 

74

 

79

 

1-4

Gryphon’s lead much of the game but couldn’t handle the Ryerson bigs even with Mott scoring 31.

Guelph

 

Toronto

1-5

Almost a replay of the night before except the Gryphon’s lead until the 2 minute mark. Gryphon’s have no threat inside.

3-5

Gryphon’s rely on three players (MMM) for most of their scoring and tend to fade down the stretch.  Gryphon’s really need to win the first two in January.

An OT shocker as the Gryphon’s steal one behind McCarthy’s 26

 

Jan 27

 

Guelph

 

McMaster

 

 

76

 

83

 

5-10

Gryphon’s lose in OT, but with 27 official turnovers and seemingly many more it’s amazing they finished tied in regulation.

The Gryphon’s finish out of the playoffs for the first time since 1987/88 and it’s hard to be optimistic for next year.

 

Jay Mott graduates and will be remembered for his high arching 3’s and his frequent injuries.  Gryphon fans wish him well.
