The Huskies took control midway through the first quarter with a 22-6 that erased an early 1 point Regina lead and then took a 32 point lead into halftime in routing the Cougars in Regina before a crowd of 1,054.
Cougars last lead was at 10-9 but then 6'5" fourth-year forward Duncan Jones hammered home a dunk, igniting a Saskatchewan run that culminated in a 60-28 halftime lead. Jones had 7 of his game-high 21 points in the first quarter while Huskies strong guard combo of 5'11" Jamelle Barrett and 6'0" Rejean Chabot had 21 of the Huskies 33 points in the quarter. Chabot finished with 19 (10 in the first quarter) and Barrett added 17 (11 in the first quarter).
Jeff Lukomski led the Cougars with 14 points. Kris Heshka, back from injury, had nine, while Brendan Hebert chipped in with eight points in 15 minutes off the bench.
