Lakehead 93, Brandon 49

The Thunderwolves completely dominated the Bobcats with excellent team defense that rarely allowed an easy look or take to the rim and Lakehead beat Brandon at will in transition to decisively win their first round matchup at the 44th Wesmen Classic.  Lakehead, the defending champions, meets the winner of Minot State and Saskatchewan in tomorrow's championship semi-finals.

The T-Wolves also ran their half court stuff well, finishing with 14 three-pointers, shooting 40% from beyond the arc.  Lakehead held Brandon to only 7 first quarter points to race out to a 15 point lead and then took a 23 point lead into halftime.  Forward Brendan King led the way for Lakehead with a game high 21 points with several coming in transition as he continually beat his check down the floor on the break.  Benjamin Johnson added 11 off the bench for Lakehead which substituted freely. Yoosrie Salhia had a game high 16
rebounds for the Wolves.  Kyrie Coleman led Brandon with 14 points. O’Brian Wallace added nine.
