Saskatchewan 88, Calgary 48 (Sask tournament championship game)

With thanks to Wayne Thomas from Dinos Hoops News...

It was an absolute mauling by the Saskatchewan Huskies over their Canada West rivals, the Calgary Dinos in the final game of the Huskies Shootout on Saturday night. With a 23-10 start in quarter #1, the U of S never looked back, as they out-scored the over-matched Calgary squad in every quarter, including a 20-5 drubbing in the 4th.

Calgary could not slow down a determined Saskatchewan offense, which was led by their new import guard Jamelle Barrett (3rd year), who notched 24 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists. David Neufeld added 17 and Nolan Brudehl 11 for the 3-0 Huskies. Calgary got 10 points from Tyler Fidler, and 8 apiece from Keenan Milburn and Andrew McGuinness.

Saskatchewan outshot Calgary 50% to 33% from the floor, and won the rebounding 36-28. The Dinos turned it over 26 times to 17 for the Huskies, and U of S were 15/19 from the line for 79% to 13/22 for 59% for UC.

Next weekend will see the start of Canada West regular season play for both teams ... Calgary visits the Victoria Vikes in a pair of games on Friday and Saturday. Saskatchewan is also on the coast for a big 2 game set with the UBC T-Birds.

In the first game of the night, the Brandon Bobcats topped the Queen’s Golden Gaels 70-56 behind 17 points from 6'7" Kyrie Coleman.
Notes ... In games involving other Canada West teams ... From Friday - Montana - Western 80 Lethbridge 72 ... Saturday - Brandon 70 Queens 56 ... Victoria 91 McGill 64 ... Fraser Valley 89 Laurentian 61
