MEN’S BASKETBALL (CANADA WEST)
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2010
TRINITY WESTERN SPARTANS (79) REGINA COUGARS (55)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SPARTANS SWEEP COUGARS AT HOME


LANGLEY, British Columbia –
The No. 8 ranked Trinity Western men’s basketball team won its fourth game in a row Saturday night, beating the visiting Regina Cougars 79-55 at the Langley Events Centre.

The Spartans got off to a quick start as they jumped out to a 20-7 first quarter lead and never looked back en route to a convincing victory in which TWU had its best defensive effort of the season in allowing Regina only 55 points.

“We had a great defensive intensity and I think that was the difference,” said TWU coach Scott Allen. “Because of our solid defence, we got some easy buckets. There were some great steals out there and guys are really getting more comfortable in what we’re trying to do on the defensive end.”

The win improves TWU’s record to 6-2 on the year while the loss drops Regina’s record to 4-2.

Right from the opening tip-off, it was clear the Spartans had no intentions of giving the Cougars any life after they had beat them by 40-points Friday night. With five players contributing at least three points in the opening frame, the Spartans were better than Regina in every statistical category from field goal shooting percentage (46.2 per cent to 23.1 per cent) to rebounding (9-4) to steals (5-1) to made free throws (6-0).

And in reality, the starting 10 minutes was basically a mock-up of what the rest of the game had in order.

Although Regina played a much better second quarter – scoring 18 points, thanks to an 11-point quarter from Jeff Lukomski – the Cougars were still outscored by four points and went into the break trailing 42-25.

With the Spartans Jacob Doerksen getting into early foul trouble, sitting for much of the first half and getting shutout in points in the first 20 minutes, the Spartans secondary scoring was forced to step up. And they did just that. Kyle Coston did so by leading the team with 12 first half points while Calvin Westbrook had 10 and five others had at least three.

For Regina, after Lukomski there wasn’t much. Paul Gareau had six points and Matt Campbell added four rebounds in the first half.

The second half saw little change with TWU maintaining control and playing a good portion of the bench to close out the contest. The Spartans lead edged to nearly 40 points in the third quarter – by holding Regina to just six points in the period – but in a bit of a sloppy final frame, the Cougars managed to get the game to within 24 points.

With the end of the Spartans bench on the floor, Regina outscored TWU 24-10 in the fourth quarter as  Sterling Nostedt led the way with four three-pointers while putting up all of his game-high 16 points in the final quarter.

Although the Spartans won by 24 points, it was their lowest scoring win of the season.

“From the free throw line we were amazing, going 20 for 21, but other than that we just have to get in the flow of our offensive a little better,” Allen said. “But overall the weekend has been fantastic for everybody to build up their confidence.”

By the final horn, Regina’s Lukomski was second on his team with 14 points, while Campbell led his team with five rebounds.

For the Spartans, Doerksen, although he only made baskets in the third quarter, finished tied with Coston for the team lead with 12 points. Westbrook finished with 10 points, while seven other players got at least two points. Doerksen also had a game-high seven rebounds.

The Spartans next game is Nov. 19 when they host Alberta while Regina kicks off a weekend series in Victoria the same night.

GAME NOTES – TWU won the FG percentage battle 42.9 to 30.8…TWU has 17 steals to Regina’s seven.
