UBC 92, Trinity Western 77

The T-Birds again did a tremendous job defending and came up with a comfortable win in Langley.  I was able to catch the final 5 minutes of the game and was especially impressed with 6'1" fifth-year point guard Alex Murphy and his ability to get to where he wanted to on the floor and either finish or find guys.  The capper was Murphy driving by 6'0" Tristan Smith and finding a cutting 6'3" Doug Plumb along the baseline, who finished with a thunderous two-handed slam that restored a 15 point lead.  TWU is loaded with athletes including 6'7" lefty Kyle Coston, who had a late-game slam but the focus of their offense is (should be) 6'6" Jacob Doerksen and his array of moves inside but also with the ability to be effective on the perimeter, either shooting 3's or getting open and driving, which he did late in the game, taking a feed and slamming home a dunk.  More to come...
