FROM THE COACH:
"Our weekend started really well with a strong win at home for our last home game of the regular season. Our guys did a tremendous job on the board, taking 70 of the 106 rebounds of the night! The performance of the night goes to our Captain Jordan Lawson, finishing the game with a triple-double. I’m pleased to see the performance of Daniel Kilmartin and Waedon Dueck who, combined for 36 points and 23 rebounds on the night. We played aggressive all game long, leading the tempo and playing with a lot of composure. In fact, early in the 4th quarter, our lead was only by 10 points, but the team stayed focus and was able to pull-up a 23 points lead to end the night.
Saturday was an all-new story. It is difficult to win two times in a row on the same team. The opponent knows your type of play, they know where they have to adjust and push. CMU did a great job starting the game with a high percentage shooting performance. We lacked spirit and energy early in the game and struggled as a group to find solutions on offence. Lead by Joshua Armstrong in offence, our team was able to come back early in the second half. Our zone defence forced a lot of turnovers on their point guard and we started thinking that we will be back on time to win the game. Unfortunately, as I explained to the team numerous times, teams usually win the game during the first minutes.  We need to be ready to play CMU again in a few weeks, Thursday, February 13th for the MCAC semi-finals!” - Pierre Dubreuil

PLAYER’S VIEW: 

”Saturday’s game wasn’t great for us. We struggled to shut down their three-point shooting, which was a big factor in them winning the game.
Friday night however, we had a great game. There seemed to be a lot of offensive contributions from everyone all game long. We also controlled the boards all night, which was huge for taking away their second chances and giving ourselves more opportunities to score. With only one week left of the regular season, I’m really hoping that the team can move past our poor performance on Saturday and play just as well if not better than we did on Friday to end the season.” Waedon Dueck
