A strong start as Lakehead opened with baskets from Hackner and Salhia. 4-4 right now as we approach the midway point of the quarter. This is definitely the pace that Lakehead wants as the high-powered offence of UBC has been slowed down. Missed assignment as Brent Malish gave UBC their first lead of the game 6-4 on an easy layup. The LU coaching staff is hot, the fans are fired up. Only Leo Rautins and Rod Black sitting five feet beside me seemed to be relaxed at this point. 4:56 now as Lakehead tries to settle down with a timeout. Quick basket out the pause from UBC’s Josh Whyte, followed by an open-court layup on their next possession. 10-4 UBC, and the Wolves need to control things again. Tough shot for Greg to try to beat shot clock; UBC are showing some aggressive perimeter D to disrupt Lakehead’s offensive flow. Jones is getting his first minutes, out there with Salhia, Searle, King and Nagy. JJ gets fouled and hits two FTs to make it 10-6 – he’s looking focused out there. Big steal by Nagy but LU turns it over right away. UBC is having trouble scoring in the halfcourt. If Lakehead can slow things down it’s they’ve got a great chance to pull off the second upset in two games today.
