April 12, 2005


The Men’s AA Basketball Team won a bronze medal at the recently completed Provincial championships in Chicoutimi.

In the opener, the Cheetahs lost to Limoilou, the eventual gold medal winner, 97-96 after trailing by as much as 31 points in the first half and by 19 at halftime. The Cheetahs then mounted a tremendous comeback and took a two point lead with 30 seconds to play. Limoilou then hit a three point shot to re-take the lead. Vanier was then fouled with one second remaining but both foul shots were missed to end the game.

The second game saw the Cheetahs handle host Chicoutimi 90-70. In the third game, the Cheetahs outlasted league rival Montmorency 88-79. In the bronze medal game, Saad Beg hit a last second shot to lead Vanier to a thrilling 84-83 decision over Brébeuf.


Elsewhere, Mark D’Agostino netted 21 points and was named M.V.P. of the CEGEP all-stars in the Qball all-star contest against the university all-stars. The university all-stars were victorious by a 123-114 margin.

Saad Beg was named M.V.P. of the AA all-star game this past Saturday at CEGEP Vieux-Montréal. Vanier’s Jomo Johnson and Matthew Vanier both played in the game while coach Rowan Barnes was part of the coaching staff.


The AAA league all-star games were held on Sunday at McGill University. Dranadia Roc captured the women’s three point shooting competition for the second straight year. Vanessa Danisi and Caroline Hébert also represented the Cheetahs in this all-star tilt.

In the men’s game, Colson Sénat won the all-star slam dunk contest. He also had a big game with 4 three point shots, including a long one in overtime. Adrian Sapp, Mark D’Agostino and Greg Page also made this post-season all-star showcase.
