Saskatchewan 104, Regina 76

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.

Regina's record against winning teams (above .500) continues to be brutal.
Last night's beat down at the hands of the Huskies gives the Cougars a 1-8 mark against the five teams above them in the standings.
By late Saturday night, it will be 1-9.
The Cougars, though, have proved themselves to be rather adept at exploiting the weaker teams in the conference of which there are plenty.
Seven of the 13 teams in Canada West have losing records and Regina is 11-1 against them with a pair of games to come against Manitoba.
So the Cougars will probably wind up with a 14-10 record.
Unfortunately, most of the teams Regina has beaten won't make the post season.
For the teams ranked ahead of them, Regina would be a coveted playoff opponent,
