'Wolves Host #1 Carleton and #3 Ottawa

Inline images 1 Media Release Lakehead University Athletics Department T-Wolves Host Ravens and Gee-Gees in Home OpeningWeekend Movember 6, 2013 — Thunder Bay, Ont. The first basketball home games of the regular season happen this weekend, with the Carleton Ravens and Ottawa Gee-Gees squaring off against the Thunderwolves Friday and Saturday, respectively. Game times are 6pm (women) and 8pm (men) both evenings. Friday's game against the #1 ranked Ravens arrives with much anticipation following their match up in last year's CIS gold medal game. The 'Wolves did meet the Ravens in exhibition play in October, losing 79-60 in the Ravens' gym. Carleton has begun the season 2-0, and will be led by 5th year post Tyson Hinz, along with the dynamic Scrubb brothers, Phillip and Thomas. Needless to say, the Raven's lineup bears many weapons, and typically gives up very little on the defensive end. Not to be outdone, the Gee-Gees (2-0) are ranked #3 in the nation and will no doubt be looking for revenge following the T-Wolves' ouster of them in the CIS semi-finals last March. Sharp shooting Johnny Berhanemeskel is already shredding the opposition at a sizzling 27.5 points per game. Coach Matt Erdman: "It's great to be at home this weekend after three straight road weekends. Carleton and Ottawa are 1st and 3rd in the country, respectively, and a challenge our guys should be looking forward to. The preparation is the same as every week: follow the process, stick to the game plan and compete for 40 minutes."
