Alberta 65, Lethbridge 48 after 3 quarters

Keyed by back-to-back 3's by 5'11" Scott Leigh, the Bears finished the third quarter on 14-2 run to break open a tight two point game at halftime as they begin the fourth quarter. After 6'1" Jeff Price (16 points on 4-9 shooting, 6 rebounds) knocked in a circus fall away to bring Lethbridge back to within five at 51-46, Leigh (19 points in the first three quarters) got hot from the perimeter when the Horns sank their "d" to try to take away the inside and Leigh made them pay. The Bears have received solid contributions from Jamal Bucknor, Ken Otieno and Harvey Bradford. 6'6" Robin Cooper had 8 points in the first half after which Lethbridge trailed by only 2 at 40-38 but then watched as Alberta rode a 25-10 third quarter to gap the Horns. Alberta is looking for the weekend sweep.
