#2 Brandon 103, #5 Saskatchewan 87 (Brandon Tournament) Courtesy of Brandon Sports Info... BRANDON, MB – Call it a super sweep for the Brandon University Bobcats. Fueled by 26 points and 9 assists from 5th year guard Yul Michel, the ‘Cats improved their pre-season record to 3-0 on Saturday night, dismantling the Saskatchewan Huskies 103-87 in the finale of the Super 8 Invitational. For the third straight game, the ‘Cats looked unstoppable on offense, shooting a remarkable 66% (43-65) from the field. “We don’t want to put a number on what we expect offensively,” said first year Brandon head coach Mike Raimbault, whose team averaged 96 points per game this weekend. “We like to run and play an up-tempo style of game, and we’ve got talented guys who are capable of putting the ball in the hole. The past couple of nights we’ve been able to get stops on defense, which has led to the execution of our offense.” The ‘Cats were firing on all cylinders Saturday night, turning a four point half-time lead into a 15-point advantage at the end of three. It was an impressive performance, but Raimbault scoffed at the notion that this victory - over a perennial Canada West powerhouse - was some type of a “statement” to the rest of the conference. “We’re not about making statements. I know it’s a clich├ęd thing to say, but we’re about taking this season one game at a time. Every time we step on the floor, the guys believe they can win, and they work towards that. We’re not looking to the future, we’re focused on the task before us each night.” In addition to Michel’s spectacular effort – 10/12 from the field and 6/6 from the free throw line – 5th year forward Adam Hartman delivered 23 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists, while big man Yuri Whyms dropped 16 points. “My goal was to play a calm, relaxed style of basketball tonight,” said a smiling Whyms, who spent much of the weekend’s first two games on the bench with foul trouble. “I’ve been coming out super-pumped, and I’ve been over-doing it. The way I played tonight is the way I plan on playing from here on out.” Nikosey Quick added 13 and Dany Charlery had 10 for the ‘Cats. Andrew Spagrud led the way for the Huskies, notching 23 points, 6 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 steals. Rejean Chabot and Rob Lovelace added 16 and 15 points respectively. Brandon/Saskatchewan Box Score
