#2 Brandon 89, Simon Fraser 82 (Brandon Super 8 Tournament) Charlery Scores 27, Leads Bobcats To Victory...Written by: Jeremy Sawatzky, BU Sports Information BRANDON, MB – For the second straight night, Dany Charlery proved to be an unstoppable offensive weapon for the Brandon University Bobcats. With his team leading by one at the end of three, Charlery caught fire and delivered 15 fourth quarter points, leading the ‘Cats to an 89-82 victory over the Simon Fraser Clan Friday night at the BU Gymnasium. “It was really a team thing, we all stepped up when it mattered,” said Charlery, who scored all but six of his team’s fourth quarter points. “Things didn’t seem to go our way all game… and then my shot just started dropping.” Through two games at BU’s annual Super 8 Invitational, Charlery has astounding numbers: he’s connected 19 of 29 field goals, 10 of 12 three-pointers, and 7 of 9 free throws. “I guess you could say I feel pretty good about things so far,” he joked afterwards. The win improved Brandon’s record to 2-0 this weekend, although it was a much grittier victory than Friday’s rout of Lakehead. A back and forth affair all night long, the ‘Cats managed to pull away thanks to Charlery’s heroics and some smothering defense down the stretch. “We don’t really seem to tighten up in these situations,” noted Brandon head coach Mike Raimbault, whose team had a knack for winning close games in 2006-07. “That’s one of the benefits of having a veteran team. The guys have been there, and they believe that when the game comes down to one or two possessions, they’ll be able to take care of business.” 5th year Bobcat Adam Hartman turned in a solid effort Friday night, notching 23 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 assists. Meanwhile, Yuri Whyms scored 10 points, Yul Michel had 10 points and 7 assists, and Nick Quick dropped 10 points alongside 8 assists. The Clan was led by Greg Wallis, who scored 22 points in the losing cause. Sean Burke and Kevin Shaw added 16 and 15 respectively. Brandon shot 56% (33-59) from the field, 50% (8-16) from three-point range, and 83% (15-18) at the free throw line. Simon Fraser knocked down 49% (33-68) of their field goals, 53% (10-19) of their three’s, and 75% (6-8) of their free throws. Saturday’s schedule features winless Simon Fraser taking on winless Lakehead at 6, and the two unbeaten squads – Saskatchewan and Brandon – squaring off in a de facto “championship game” at 8.
