Going into our first game against Faith, we knew we had to come strong and dictate our tempo right at the beginning of the game. We did so and were able to set up our type of play early. Lead by Senior Jordan Lawson (13 points in the first half) and the early contribution of our bench (15 points first half), we were able to finish the first half with a 20 points lead.
Faith came back with a strong mindset after the break and slowly started to bridge the gap between us. We were unable to maintain the big lead but still took the game by 7 points for the win. Our bench finished with 29 points, led by Freshmen Joshua Armstrong and Kevin Camara for 27 points combined.

Playing Ozark the second day was not easy; they are a very talented and athletic team. Once again, we were able to dictate the first half, giving them some bad looks in defence and scoring everything with more than 40% in the offence. We finished the first half with a lead of 10 points. Unfortunately,our team relaxed in the second half and were not able to play with the same intensity. Ozark came back strong, and their selection of shots was just better than us. They shot 60% from the field goal line in the second half, taking the game by 11 points, leaving us with a bitter loss.
Our team is on the right path; our bench is becoming stronger and more efficient every game, giving me better freedom for our rotations. At the end of our game against Faith, not less than 6 players had a double-digit scoring line. If we can reduce our turnovers and find a way to be more efficient and perform better in the second half, we are going to be an excellent basketball team!

Joshua Armstrong: “The Weekend started really good with a great team win. We were up by 20, and the home team slowly started to come back, but we came together in the 4th to come away with the 7 points win. Our next two games that weekend, we’re both losses but a great learning experience for the team. I feel that everyone on the team came out of this weekend with something they have to work on in order to improve the team."
