Lakehead Wins West Semi-Final 64-59 over Waterloo

A sold out thunderdome crowd witnessed a big win in typical fashion for the 2009-10 'Wolves.
After a slow start in the first half the team went into the locker room down 40-29 at the half. The strong shooting of freshmen Ryan Thomson (17 first half points on 7-10 shooting) and reserve post Sebastian Kasiuk (two 3's and a mid-range jumper) accounted for 25 of the team's 29 points to open the game.

In the second half the 'Wolves defense came to play and reminded the L.U. faithful why they were the top defensive team in the OUA West this season and held Waterloo to 4-27 shooting from the field over the 3rd and 4th quarters. Yoosrie Salhia recorded a double-double of 13 and 10 all in the second half and Greg Carter was a leader on both ends of the floor with his offensive ball control and defensive ball pressure.

Both teams played tough and the crowd noise was a factor in the second half once the team started to mount the come back. The 'Wolves are now scheduled to play @ Windsor for the OUA West Championship. The teams split earlier in January @ Windsor with L.U. winning in OT and taking the 2nd game on the chin by 20.
