2013 Senior Night Features OUA West Weekend Showdown

Media Release
February 6, 2013
Windsor Lancers Enter Thunderdome for Seniors' Night Battle
The Windsor Lancers visit the Thunderdome this weekend for a duo of double headers against the men's and women's teams. Saturday night's games will mark Seniors' Night, as the women's team will have 1 player (Carolyn Fragale) and the men's team 6 players (Greg Carter, Yoosrie Salhia, Matt Schmidt, Brendan King, Joseph Jones and Ben Johnson) playing their final regular season games in the Thunderdome.

Men (12-5, 2nd place OUA-W, CIS #10)

After many questions were raised following the first semester as to Thunderwolves' knack to hang with the best in the country, the T-Wolves' efforts to answer those have begun to resonate around the CIS, with Lakehead returning to the Top 10 this week at #10. They will face a Windsor team (14-3) that has enjoyed CIS Top 10 rankings the majority of the season, and currently sits in the #4 spot. More importantly, Windsor sits in atop the OUA West, 2 games ahead of Lakehead, who with two wins this weekend could take first place in the OUA West for the first time this season.

To do so they will have to deal with a tough Lancer lineup, led by center Lien Phillip (14.9 PPG, 10.4 RPG), who leads the OUA in total rebounds (5 ahead of T-Wolf Yoosrie Salhia). Add to that shooting guard Enrico Diloreto's 14.4 PPG and point guard Josh Collins' 4.4 assists per game, and Thunderwolf fans can look forward to a multitude of match-up battles for Lakehead's senior players.

Coach Scott Morrison:

"After a good start to the semester, this weekend represents the ultimate test to see if we have indeed progressed since a tough first semester. Windsor is as close to a division 1 type lineup that we have seen since Carleton back in November. We will have to execute our game plan and attempt to contain the excellent 1 on 1 players that Windsor puts on the court at every position."
