Canada West Recap: Ferguson goes for 38 in Bears win

Alberta 81, Brandon 71  The Bears clawed back from an early 10 point deficit as 6'4" Daniel Ferguson had 38 points including 7 for 12 from three point land in Brandon.  Ferguson, the fourth-year transfer from Berry College via Mississauga, ON who some observers already regard as one of the sweetest, quick release shooters to enter Canada West in several seasons, also went 13-15 from the foul line as Alberta came all the way back from a 12 point first quarter deficit and two point deficit entering the fourth quarter, holding the 'Cats to only 50 points in the final 30 minutes including only 3-11 from 3 point land.  6'8" Jordan Baker had 16 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists for Alberta while 6'3" Algoma College transfer O'Brien Wallace had 22 points and 7 rebounds to lead the host Bobcats.  Box Score

UBC 98, Winnipeg 81  The Wesmen shot 14 for 35 from beyond the arc, taking a five point lead after 1 quarter and hanging around for about 3 quarters but the T-Birds got a dominating performance by 6'6" Kamar Burke who had 17 points, 19 rebounds and 5 assists in Vancouver.  Lynden Drayton-Barrow went 5 for 10 from 3 for Winnipeg, finishing with 22 points and 9 boards while Nick Lother had 24 points to lead all scorers incluidng 4-8 3's.  Winnipeg was whistled for 32 fouls helping to set up a 31-41 UBC effort from the foul line.  Box Score

Fraser Valley 53, Victoria 50  The Vikes scored only 15 second half points, shooting only 29.7% for the game including 3-22 from 3 in giving up a double digit lead in Abbotsford as 6'3" Sam Freeman led the way with 14 points for the Cascades.  Playing without tough, table-setting 6'1" guard Matt Cullen, the Vikes generally struggled to score as veterans Ryan MacKinnon and Marco Dolcetti combined to go only 2-20 from the field, despite 19 offensive rebounds for Victoria.  Fraser Valley finished the game on an 18-5 run, allowing only 5 points in the fourth.  Box Score

Trinity Western 100, Regina 60  Holding the visiting Cougars to 26% shooting including 4 for 24 from downtown and outrebounding Regina 42-18, the host Spartans moved to 5-2 on the season with an easy win.  6'3" Calvin Westbrook had 21 points including 3-4 from 3 while 6'6" Tyrell Mara added a 12 point/14 rebound double-double as TWU shot 10-22 from beyond the arc.  The teams meet again tonight.  Box Score

Saskatchewan 93, Lethbridge 61  A dominant second quarter allowed the Huskies to bounce back from an early deficit and the Saskatchewan front line dominated while the Horns shot only 1 for 20 from beyond the arc in an easy road win.  6'2" guard Rejean Chabot had a season-high 28 points while Nolan Brudehl and Michael Lieffers combined for 33 points and 23 rebounds as the Huskies dominated the glass and pulled away for good with a 26-8 fourth quarter rally.  Box Score
