Joany Castor Thadal (Montreal, Que./Champlain Collge St-Lambert) knocked down the biggest three-pointer of his life on Saturday night. The shot propelled the Gaiters to a 73-72 win over the UQAM Citandins and the 2020 RSEQ Championship. It was pandemonium in Lennoxville as the 931 faithful who packed Mitchell Gym were treated to a game for the ages. Trailing by two with 15.5 seconds remaining, the Gaiters called time out. They got ball into Jordan Thornhill (Montreal, Que./John Abbott College) who swung it to Ibrahim Ngom (Montreal, Que./Vanier College) then to Nervens Demosthene (Terrebonne, Que./Cegep de Montmorency). Eventually it ended in Castor Thadal’s hands who made no mistake from the corner in front of the Gaiters’ bench. The win means Bishop’s will be the RSEQ representative at the 2020 U SPORTS Final-8 in Ottawa on starting on Friday. Seeding will be announced on Sunday. See full story in the Monday, March 2 edition of The Record.
