Mustangs Cruise to Dearmon Memorial Tournament

Western (9-7) 80, Toronto (15-5) 66 6'1" shooting guard Jason Milliquet went 5 for 5 as part of a tremendous 19 point first-half performance as the Mustangs dominated from almost start to finish in capturing the championship of the Ed Dearmon Memorial tournament at Ryerson in Toronto. Western led by 17 at 48-31 after two quarters and while the Blues got the game back to 10 midway through the second half, the Mustangs were in control the entire way to claim the win. Tournament MVP 6'1" guard Matt Curtis had another tidy effort leading the way from his point guard spot with 13 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists while 6'5" Andrew Wedemire added 13 and 6'10" Colin Laforme had a 10 point/8 rebound contribution. Western shot a blistering 8 for 12 from downtown as a team, 16 for 22 from the line and 50% from the floor. The game was very well played as, despite going up and down for much of the game, the team's combined for only 13 turnovers. 6'2" Nick Magalas led Toronto, which made only 4 of 15 3's, with 13.
