SACKVILLE, N.B. – The Mounties men’s basketball team posted another dominant win this past weekend over the Dal AC Rams by a final score of 97-51.

Alex Chisholm led the way with 21 points, while Thomas LeGallais added 15 in what was a great team victory. The Mounties did not spend too much time celebrating the win however as they have quickly shifted their sights forward to a huge game this Saturday against the Crandall University Chargers. After the use of an ineligible player cost Holland College some early season victories, the shuffling of the standings now sees the Mounties holding a share of first place with a 12-1 record, while Crandall sits one spot behind at 8-5.

Led by one of the league’s leading scorers Thomarcus Nix, the Chargers will be a huge test for the Mounties as they look to improve to 13-1 and solidify themselves as a top team in the ACAA. While the Mounties took the first matchup of the season by a score of 84-68, the Chargers have been surging as of late and should pose a much tougher challenge in the upcoming matchup.

The Mounties expect a full gym on Saturday to help push them to victory. Tip-off is set for 4 p.m. Feb. 4 at the Mount Allison Athletic Centre.
