'Wolves Win 78-70 vs Bishop's
Lakehead finishes weekend 1-2
October 20, 2013 — Ottawa, Ont.
The men's basketball team finished Carleton's House-Laughton tournament with a 78-70 win over the Bishop's Gaiters.

Once again the 'Wolves were caught off guard to begin the game, trailing 21-13 after 10 minutes and 38-28 at the half.

Lakehead would get their game together in the 3rd quarter, erasing the 10 point deficit to tie things at 52 heading into the final frame. The 4th quarter saw the Thunderwolves finish the weekend strong and get an 8-point victory.

Four Thunderwolves scored in double digits, led by Dwayne Harvey with 22 points, followed by Anthony McIntosh with 14, Igor Lebov with 13, and Henry Tan with 10.

The Gaiters top scorer was Onnex Blackwood with 18 points and a game-high 9 rebounds.

Coach Matt Erdman:

"It was good to get a win under our belts but we still struggled out of the gate and turned it over way too many times in the first half [16 TOs]. The second half game plan was executed and things started to turn our way. We took care of the ball and played with the sense of urgency needed on a nightly basis."

The men's team play their final non-conference games in Winnipeg next weekend.
