Lakehead vs. Cape Breton - First Quarter
The boys are hustling off the get go and are playing with determination. The 11:00 a.m. start is a bit of a challenge, especially with Cape Breton have the extra time to sleep relative to the Atlantic time zone. Off the bat, Thomson hits a three to open scoring. Cape Breton gets back with seven straight points including two consecutive open layups. Thomson striped on the other end and back the other way the Capers’ PG Dorsey and F Jaspers-Fayer run a nice pick-and-roll but J-F blows the layup. McIntosh checks in for Thomson. McIntosh didn’t see much time yesterday, but the ‘Wolves might need some athleticism. Searle air balls and 3-point attempt; that’s two major misses from outside for LU after Carter missed one earlier. Timeout Lakehead and Scott makes it clear that he wants the ball going inside. Yoos shot 5-7 yesterday but seven shots isn’t enough for him. Capers 11 LU 3. Clear travel by Fraser missed by the crew in front of the LU bench – the fans saw it. Another CB layup and Lakehead looks flat. Searle responds with a big 3-ball – he needed that after missing his first few shots. Schmidt is getting ready to check in with Hornby and King as Scott goes deep into his bench early. Nine guys have already seen playing time in the opening eight minutes and Nagy follows suit a few possessions later. Lakehead goes zone and forces and turnover then King goes the other way for two. Deep two from Hornby rattles off the rim. Good ball denial and then on-the-ball D by Nagy as he forces a tough baseline drive by the Capers guard. At the end of one it’s Cape Breton 16 Lakehead 8.
