6'2" Isaac Kuon had 17 points while 6'7" freshmen Lien Phillip made his Lancer CIS debut with 16 to lead visiting Windsor over the Cascades. Windsor led 40-35 at half and then had a various leads of 10+ in the 2nd half but could never put the pesky Cascades away. 6'3" Sam Freeman led all scorers with 22 points for UFV while 6'7" Nigel Johson-Tyghter added 11 and 7 boards and 6'0" Monty Hardware 12 points for the Lancers.
