Wesmen Classic 3rd Place Game

Manitoba 83, Lakehead 78  The third place game at the 44th Wesmen Classic featured a pair of clubs hardly shy to fire up bombs from beyond the arc and, despite both teams bouncing back quickly from tight, high-energy championship semi-final losses, neither disappointed as the Bisons pulled out a five point win.  The teams combined for 56 threes attempted and a pair of big men led the way from the perimeter as 6'7" Sean Maxwell had 21 on 4-6 3's to lead Manitoba while 6'7" Ryan Thomson went a perfect 4-4 from downtown to lead all scorers with 23 points.  6'6" post Yoosrie Salhia had 11 points and was a monster on the glass with 17 boards while Bisons guard Jonar Huertas added 19 for the victors.  The championship game between Saskatchewan and Winnipeg goes later tonight.
