The Georgian Grizzlies men's basketball team hosted the Canadore Panthers on Friday night at the Georgian Athletic Centre in Barrie.
It was a huge bounce back game for the Grizzlies.
After trailing by three points at halftime the Grizzlies came back stronger putting up a big third quarter led by Tyler Vanessen (Whitby) who had 12 of his game-high 31 points in the game's third frame alone.
It came down to the wire but the Grizzlies were able to hold on for an impressive 87-84 victory.
Vanessen shot 65% on his field goals as part of his double-double performance along with 12 rebounds.
The win puts the Grizzlies back to .500 with a 2-2 record on the season.
Next up for Georgian is a road game Tuesday night when they travel to take on the George Brown Huskies.
The Grizzlies will continue their busy week next Thursday, Nov. 8 when they play their next home game against the Centennial Colts.
Tip-off for the men's game is scheduled for 8 p.m. following the women's game at 6 p.m. Tickets for the game are available at the door for $5.
