T-Wolves Face Marauders, Mustangs Wednesday
Basketball teams seek to extend win streaks into the playoffs
February 17, 2014 — Thunder Bay, Ont.
The OUA playoffs commence this Wednesday for Lakehead's basketball teams, with the men hosting the Western Mustangs in the Thunderdome at 7:00pm.

Men (9-13, 4th OUA West)

The men's team accomplished the improbable, getting some help from OUA opponents last week and winning their last 3 games to slip into 4th place in the OUA West, thus earning a home playoff game.

The Mustangs are coming off 4 straight losses (2 of them by 1 point), and will play their 4th game in 8 days against the ThunderwolvesWednesday night.

Lakehead lost 73-72 to the Mustangs back in January in their first match-up before dropping a lop-sided 73-47 decision to them the following night. The 'Wolves will hope to get help from the high intensity playoff environment in the Thunderdome, where the 'Wolves haven't lost a playoff game since 2001.

Coach Matt Erdman:

"We finished the regular season on a positive note so hopefully that confidence carries over to Wednesday night. It's great everything aligned and we're able to play at home with a short turnaround. Western is a tough match-up for anyone because they have some extremely versatile players and our guys must understand playoffs are a whole new animal."
