Badgers Capture 41st Wesmen Classic

Even without 6'2" Rohan Steen, it appears that the Brock Badgers are running on virtually all cylinders. Once again last night, the high powered Badger offense got virtually whatever they wanted, as tournament MVP 6'1" Scott Murray had a pair of threes during the game deciding second-quarter run and Brock captured the championship at the 41st Wesmen Classic. The Badgers broke open a reasonably tight game with a 27-16 second quarter run to lead by 15 at 51-36 at halftime and then led by as many as 24 in the second half to cruise to the win. 5'10" Brad Rootes had 15 points and 15 assists, many in transition including a sweet look to 6'7" Owen White which was promptly flushed hard and also several back door looks to make Minot State pay for overplays on the wing. Brock also got a sterling effort from newcomer 6'7" Mike Muir, who had 21 points in 21 minutes. Rootes was named a tournament all-star along with Calgary's Ross Bekkering, Winnipeg's Erfan Nasajpour plus Matt Witwer and Aaron Patterson from Minot State.
