Stingers Roundup 

Magnifying glass

Damian Buckley, a third-year point guard with the Stingers and male athlete of the week, was a bright spot in a difficult 89-66 loss to the Laval Rouge et Or on Jan. 12. He was the top performer on the Stingers with 16 points, nine rebounds and six assists. After a 72-70 win Jan. 4 over the Bishop’s Gaiters, Buckley was called by The Gazette’s Randy Phillips “the best go-to guy in Canadian university basketball.”

At right, the Stingers’ James Clark dominates Laval’s Xavier Baribeau. The Jan. 5 game against conference leader McGill was a heartbreaker, 77-76. They hope to turn it around in their next match at Bishop’s on Jan. 25.
