Western captures Redbird Classic at McGill

The Mustangs remained unbeaten at 4-0, jumping out to a 40-17 halftime lead and going on to smack UPEI 87-69 this afternoon on the final day of the McGill Redbird Classic.  Western's fine 6'2" fourth-year guard Ryan Barbeau was named tournament MVP while 6'6" All-Canadian forward Andrew Wedemire secured a tournament all-star selection.  Barbeau finished with 28 points including 5 3's in this afternoon's victory while Wedemire had a 23 point/11 rebound double-double. 

"Ryan was outstanding today as he led our team.  Our defense continued to improve as the tournament went on."  commented Western Coach Brad Campbell.
