Alberta 87, Thompson Rivers 60

The Golden Bears jumped out to a 50-31 halftime lead behind their young high-quality core led by 6'8" sophomore guard Jordan Baker with 22 points and 14 rebounds including 10 on the defensive end.  The Bears were able to dominate the glass (51-32) and get out in transition (54% shooting in the first half).  The WolfPack shot only 32% on the game.

6'4" fourth-year transfer Daniel Ferguson added 15 points for Alberta (2-0), while 6'10" second-year center Rob Dewar contributed 15 points.  Flashy, athletic guard 6'2" Kenny Otieno chipped in with 12.
“Probably for the first time this season we didn’t not bring a pretty good effort,” said TRU coach Scott Clark as quoted on Thompson Rivers athletic site. “ We were handed our hat, it was as simple as that.”

The WolfPack was led by their 6'2" import guard Justin Riggins (Altanta, GA) who had 20 points in 34 minutes on the floor.  Simon Fraser transfer guard Kevin Pribilsky had 14 points.

The WolfPack entertain the Trinity Western Spartans in their next action. The Spartans are at the Tournament Capital Center on November 5 th and 6 th. Alberta goes home to host UBC.
