The sluggish trend would get bucked in the following quarter, as the T Wolves created an 8 point advantage by halftime, 44-36. From there the Warriors were incapable of getting the lead under 6 points, and Lakehead ran away with the game in the 4th quarter, out-scoring Waterloo 28-7.

Yoosrie Salhia had a typical double-double night with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Matt Schmidt added 11, and Ryan Thomson continued his successful return to action since early December with 14 points and 5 rebounds.

Lakehead shot 32-69 (46%) from the field, while Waterloo hit on 17 of their 57 attempts (30%).

Coach Scott Morrison:

"I was disappointed with the start to tonight's game. We came out and made sloppy mistakes and had to fight from behind early on. Tomorrow I am looking for a better focus from our lineup starting with a more intense warm-up and better start to the game."

The teams will rematch tomorrow at 8pm ET
