Jamie Searle had a big game going for 17 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists in front of his Mom who surprised him with a visit Friday morning and witnessed her first career game in the Thunderdome. The packed gym also saw Venzal Russell go for 16 points and take the lion's share of the defensive load on All-Canadian Isaac Kuon who had 19 on 6-25 shooting.
Rebounding was a key for the 'Wolves who gave up 8 offensive boards to Windsor in the 1st half but limited them to 1 second chance in the 2nd half.
At the FT line Windsor was 7-10 and Lakehead was 2-2 and did not attempt a FT until under 30 seconds remaining in the game. (One way for us to shoot a high FT %).
Lakehead had a double-digit lead with 2 minutes to go but a furious scoring spree by Enrico Diloreto brought the game close by the final buzzer. Diloreto finished with 22 on 10-18 shooting.
