In the Q: Women's basketball final set

If you pay attention to our RPI, the results in yesterday's QSSF semi-finals were not surprising. However, there was a slight upset in terms of the standings when the underdog UQAM Citadins beat the Bishop's Gaiters. Despite finishing 3rd in the Quebec conference, UQAM has been in the top-5 of the RPI the last two weeks.

UQAM 60 @ Bishop's 44
UQAM had a seven point lead at halftime, and really pulled away by winning the third quarter 18-9. The biggest thing for UQAM was limiting the production of Bishop's first team all-star Katy Germain. Germain averaged just over 11 points per game over the regular season, but only had one point in the semi-final in 21 minutes. UQAM had production from Irline Noel who led both teams with 16 points and 7 rebounds. Michelle Bellemare had 12 points.

Concordia 65 @ Laval 74
Marie-Michelle Genois had 20 points, including 14 in the first quarter to lead the Rouge et Or to the victory. Concordia double- and triple-teamed Genois in the paint following the first quarter, but that opened up the corners to Elise Jobin who had 19 on 3/7 from long-range.
Concordia, who had comeback from a 17 point deficit to win in overtime the last time they played Laval in Quebec City couldn't come back from a 18 point deficit in the third quarter. They cut the gap to 7 before eventually falling by 9.
QSSF first-team all-star Krystle Douglas led all scorers with 24 points. Felon Harris had 12 off the bench for the Stingers.

This sets up a very interesting Quebec final. In the final two games of the regular season, UQAM defeated Laval in both games. You can expect them to be confident going into the final for a place at Nationals at stake.
