Dal UBC Game Notes

HALFTIME: Brent Malish just banked in a 3 and UBC closed the half strong to lead 38-21.

SECOND QUARTER: Dal is on a mini run to close what was a 15 point gap to 10 as UBC is settling for perimeter jumpers.

The Birds have scored the first 7 points of the second quarter as underrated post Bryson Kool smelt the double team and then fed Brent Malish for a layup and later Kool knocked down an 8 footer in the lane to force Dal to take another timeout. UBC has been tremendous defensively thus far.

UBC trapping Simon Farine at every opportunity after he gets the ball back in the quarter court. Dal simply can't get anything going offensively. 22-11 UBC.

Dal has had no answer for Josh Whyte off the dribble; he just finished a nice floater in the lane as the game clock wound down in the first half to give UBC an 8 point lead. The T-Birds are defending in the half court giving up only 2 open looks the whole quarter by my count and since Dal took a 7-4 lead, the Birds are on a 15-4 run to lead 19-11 after one quarter.

UBC having their way offensive right now against a Dal group touted for its ability to stop teams. UBC has made at least 4 3's already, all of which were wide-open and lead 17-11.
