Friday's nights late games recap

University of Montana Western 80 Lethbridge 74 in Dillon, Montana U of Montana Western is a NAIA team. They return five senior starters. They were 15-14 overall last year. Half time - Montana Western 36 U of L 32. U of L leading scorers: Jeff Price 20, Rob Cooper 15, Danhue Lawrence 10, Quinn Van Gaalen 9. Teams play again Saturday afternoon at Western.

UBC 77, Windsor 70 6'2" Josh Whyte had 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting while 6'5" Kamar Burke led a dominating UBC performance on the glass with a game high 14 rebounds, to go along with 14 points, and fellow big Kyle Watson added 11 boards as the T-Birds won their second straight. UBC out rebounded the Lancers 50-37. The T-Birds built leads as large as 23 points but the Lancers "showed some character" as Head Coach Chris Oliver described by mounting a 29-11 run in the first 8 minutes of the fourth quarter to bring the game back to within 1 with under a minute to go. But Burke hit a pair of free throws and Whyte knifed in for a layup to seal the deal for UBC (2-0). Oliver added that the Lancers "got exposed as an inexperienced team at times by a team that rebounded extremely hard and whose experienced guard play decided things. UBC is top 10 team so it was great exposure for our newcomers to what top level CIS basketball looks like." 6'7" Nigel Johnson-Tyghter led the way with 17 points and 8 rebounds while 6'3" Isaac Kuon added 16 points and 6'1" freshman point guard Josh Collins finished with 14 points. The high-potential Lancers likely took away many positives as the young group evolves toward what should be a Top 10 team as well. Report from UBC web site

Simon Fraser 91, Laval 82 The Clan ran their Princeton style offense to virtual perfection and les Rouge et Or may have suffered a bit of a letdown after Thursday's thrilling and draining game against UBC as Simon Fraser wins at home. The Clan were on fire from downtown, going 14 of 26 from beyond the arc and were led by their pair of excellent, big (6'4") fifth-year guards as Sean Burke and Matt Kuzminski each had 20 points. Simon Fraser went 33 for 42 from the free throw line as Laval had 4 starters foul out. For Laval, 6'5" Etienne Labreque was great again with 21 points while 6'3" J.F. Beaulieu-Mahieux added 18 points in 20 minutes.

No result yet for Regina vs. Minot State

I liked Windsor. They went to a 2-2-1 trapping zone press that took UBC out of their comfort zone and caused them to rush (not a lot of time left with a 24 second shot clock). Once Oliver figures out a rotation they will be fine. And Lien Phillip just screams "future All Canadian".
