Grizzlies shooting goes cold in loss to Knights

The Georgian Grizzlies men's basketball team hosted the Fleming Knights on Saturday afternoon at the Georgian Athletic Centre.

Georgian lost their scoring touch after the first half and while they rallied late it wasn't enough as they fell 74-65 to the Knights.

They also didn't have an answer for Fleming's Taylor Robinson (Peterborough) who scored a game high 33 points while shooting 66.7% in the contest.

Tyler Vanessen led the Grizzlies in scoring with 28 points and in rebounds with 12 while teammate Anthony Meggo scored 15 points.

The loss is a tough one for the Grizzlies as it ends a two-game win streak and puts them back under .500 with a 7-8 record. They now sit in sixth place in the OCAA east division.

Georgian will be back in action on Wednesday, Feb. 1 when they host the Seneca Sting at 8 p.m. at the Georgian Athletic Centre.
