Brock 101, Ryerson 79

After spotting the Rams an early 4 point lead, Brock finished the first quarter on a 26-7 run and cruised to an easy win over Ryerson at home in St.Catharines, taking advantage of 26 Ram turnovers. 6'4" freshman Clinton Springer-Williams continues to show he may be one of the best freshmen to enter the CIS in recent memory, scorching Ryerson for 35 points on 15-25 shooting while 6'1" Didi Mukendi, last season's CIS Freshman of the Year, broke out of a mini shooting slump with 27 points and added 5 assists, 6 rebounds and 4 steals while running the point for the most part in the absence of 5'11" Joel Whitty still out with a shoulder injury but expected back in time for next weekend's OUA regular season home opener against Ottawa. 6'7" Boris Bakovic went 6-18 from the field but made 15 of 16 free throws to finish with a team-high 28 points and added 15 rebounds. 6'2" Ryan McNeilly made 4 3's to finish with 12 points while 6'1" point guard Josh Budd added 11 but turned the ball over 6 times in the loss. Scott Wheler added 10 for Ryerson and was in the middle of a small skurmish near the end of the game, showing some frustration that resulted in being whistled for an intentional foul. Ryerson, finishing the pre-season winless against CIS competition, opens their season next weekend against Waterloo.
