'Wolves Beat Hometown Varsity Reds 80-62

The Lakehead Thunderwolves started off their east coast swing with a convincing 80-62 win over the host squad UNB Varsity Reds. Lakehead won the first three quarters before splitting the final frame to close-out an at-times sloppy contest.
The Thunderwolves bench carried the scoring load with Brendan King and Cam Hornby each notching 15 points off the bench on 8-13 combined shooting performance from 3pt land. Hornby was named "Player of the Game" and joined King as the only Thunderwolves in double figures.
Yoosrie Salhia chipped in with 9 points, 8 rebounds. Venzal Russell led the team with 10 rebounds and added 7 points including a 3pt shot to open the 2nd half when UNB went to a possession of 2-3 Zone defence.
Key team stats included Lakehead holding a 42-28 advantage on the boards (11-8 O boards) and shooting 16-39 from 3pt land to UNB's 2-9.
Tomorrow Lakehead tips-off against University of Cape Breton Capers in a rematch of last March's CIS consolation game in Ottawa. Cape Breton lost by 3 points in today's other men's match-up at the hands of St. F.X.
