Lakehead shot 11-36 from the 3pt line while limiting the home side to only 7 for 15. Carter led the way for Lakehead with 17 points 4 rebounds while fellow guard Cam Hornby had 12 points 4 rebs and 2 steals in his best LU performance of the young season. 6'6"
Yoosrie Salhis had 12 points 6 rebounds in a strong second half effort after foul trouble limited his first half minutes. Lakehead coach Scott Morrison was "really proud of how the guy bsattled and stuck to our gameplan this weekend. Neither game was neccessarily our best effort but we were able to dig in on the defensive end both nights and play tough down the stretch to come out with two good 'team' wins. We are looking forward to preparing for a strong Queen's team to open OUA play next week."
