Canada West Recap

UBC 114, Winnipeg 86  The T-Birds shot 59% for the game, took a 17 point halftime lead and then ran away with a 61 point second half to sweep the visiting Wesmen over the weekend.  UBC shot 8-16 from 3 and turned it over only 11 times all night in a dominating performance that saw all 12 players who dressed get time.  6'1" Nathan Yu had 22 points while 6'3" Doug Plumb added 21 in a very balanced effort.  Nolan Gooding had 23 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists for Winnipeg, which got another strong shooting performance from Lynden Drayton-Barrow, who knocked down 5 of 7 3's after a strong showing on Friday also.  Box Score

Saskatchewan 107, Lethbridge 90  6'2" fifth-year senior Rejean Chabot had 34 points while 6'0" Jamelle Barrett broke the Huskies school record for assists in game with 14 while adding 12 points and 5 steals to lead the Huskies to a sweep in Lethbridge before almost 1,000 fans.  Just like Friday night, Saskatchewan dominated inside as their forward combination of Nolan Brudehl and Michael Lieffers combined for 31 points and 27 rebounds while getting Horns big men Abner Kamps and Derek Waldner in foul trouble.  The Huskies again pounded the offensive glass, grabbing 23 "o" boards.  6'3" Danhue Lawrence was tremendous for Lethbridge with 34 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists while 6'5" Randy Davis added 21 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists.  Lethbridge was without sharpshooting 5'11" guard Ryan Humphrey, out indefinitely with knee problems but welcomed back 6'2" shooting guard Quinn Van Gaalen from an ankle injury; he had 8 points.  Box Score

Victoria 83, Fraser Valley 80  The Vikes recovered from their poor shooting on Friday night to go 10-24 from downtown and came back from a halftime deficit with a gut-check third quarter run to grab a split in Abbotsford.  Victoria got much better production from their two main scorers as 6'4" Ryan MacKinnon had 20 points and 7 rebounds while 6'5" Marco Dolcetti added a 3-4 effort from downtown.  The Vikes also used their front line much more effectively against the perimeter-oriented Cascades with 6'7" Pierce Anderson coming off the bench for 14 points and 5 rebounds while 6'8" Mike Berg chipped in with 12 points and 6 rebounds.  The strong shooting Cascades stayed in the game with a 14 for 32 effort from beyond the arc as 6'3" Sam Freeman (19 points) and 6'4" UBC-Okanagan transfer Ryan Fahandeg (16 points) combined to go 9 for 13 from downtown.  Vic shot 48% in the second half and turned it over only 9 times.  Box Score

Trinity Western 79, Regina 55   The Cougars shot only 31% for the game and had only 31 points after 3 quarters in a dominant defensive effort by the Spartans, who created 27 Regina turnovers and led by 38 entering the fourth quarter.  6'6" Jacob Doerksen and 6'7" Kyle Coston led a balanced TWU attack with 12 points apiece as Spartans shot a tidy 11-22 from 3 point land.  Regina was dominated on the glass, grabbing only 21 rebounds all night and only 3 on the "o" boards as bigs Paul Gareau and Kris Heshka combined for only 15 points and 6 rebounds.  Sterling Noestedt and Jeff Lukomski combined to go 8 for 19 from downtonw, many in the fourth quarter to lead Regina.  Box Score
