(FREDERICTON, NB) The UNB Varsity Reds put on a show Friday, defeating the UPEI Panthers 102-87.
The night began with Javon Master being honoured for recently becoming UNB's new regular season all time scoring leader.

Both teams came out with lots of energy, playing an entertaining first quarter.
UNB took the early lead 24-19.
As the first half came to an end, UNB had a convincing 50-37 lead.
Despite some foul concerns for both teams, the Varsity Reds took total control in the second half, leading every step of the way and winning 102-87.
Masters was the Subway player of the game. He scored 23 points, added 9 assists and grabbed three rebounds.
The Varsity Reds conclude the regular season on Saturday, when they face the Acadia Axemen, at the Richard J. Currie Center.
Game time is 8:00PM.
