Winnipeg connected on 14-of-28 (50%) from the field in the opening half. Lakehead finished the opening half 11-of-26 (42%) in the opening 20 minutes.

A strong third quarter by Winnipeg enabled the Wesmen to extend their lead to 56-47 after three quarters. Winnipeg held a double-digit lead for a stretch in the final quarter and did not let up making the final tally 75-64.

Coach Matt Erdman:

"We gave up too many offensive boards throughout the game and continued to turn the ball over which has been a huge issue for us. If we clean up those two key areas, we'll have a chance to be in games at the end."
