TRINITY WESTERN (104) BRANDON (45)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SPARTANS SHUT DOWN BOBCATS IN RECORD-SETTING FASHION



LANGLEY, British Columbia –
The Trinity Western men’s basketball team broke the school record for least points allowed in a game, holding the Brandon Bobcats to just 45 points, and romped to a 104-45 win Friday night at the Langley Events Centre.

After holding Brandon to just eight points in the first quarter, the Spartans knew they had a chance to hold Brandon to less than the record of 47 points, which was set Oct. 22, 2009 in a 68-47 win over Waterloo. And with a seven-point fourth quarter to bookend a pair of 15-point second and third quarters, TWU set the new school mark and, in doing so, earned the weekend sweep.

The Spartans also set the school record for biggest margin of victory as the 59-point difference was nine points clear of the previous mark which came in a 117-67 win over Thompson Rivers Nov. 6, 2010.
 
“I think after we talked last night, there was disappointment that the guys didn’t play better and we had a little more urgency tonight,” said TWU coach Scott Allen. “The fourth quarter has been our Achilles heel this year and we wanted to really drive it home and not quit. And the seniors really helped us make a statement.

“There was a lot of energy and guys weren’t giving up as many second chance points as yesterday.  We stopped the dribble penetration and we were better on the screen and roll. And we had a number of guys on third rotations on defence coming down and making key steals and blocks and that was excellent.”

With the win the Spartans improved their record to 19-3 while Brandon sees its record drop to 4-16 on the year.

 The Spartans came out in the first quarter with a staunch defensive effort that completely nullified the Bobcats attack, holding Brandon to single digits as the Bobcats were just 1 for 13 from inside the perimeter.

And so, with the defensive end well in hand, Jacob Doerksen decided to be the offence. After collecting only six points in Friday night’s win, Jacob Doerksen roared out in the first quarter with a 15-point effort which included shooting 3 for 4 from beyond the arc.

In the second quarter, the defensive gem TWU was unfurling continued in similar fashion to the first quarter as midway through the frame, the Spartans still had only given up 10 points. But in the latter stages of the quarter, the Bobcats started to pick up their offence and managed to put up a total of 15 points in the quarter.

But the Spartans offence also found its trigger points in the second quarter, scoring 36 in the frame to take a 57-23 advantage into the break.
 
After the first half, the difference was quite clearly field goal percentage. Both teams took 37 field goal attempts, but TWU shot 56.8 per cent while Brandon shot 21.6 per cent. Doerksen finished the half with 19 points while the Bobcats top scorer was Kyle Vince with six points.

In third quarter, Tristan Smith potted 11 points as he was 5 for 8 from the field and led the Spartans to a 27-15 advantage in the quarter.

And in the final frame, the only question left to be answered was whether the Spartans would break the defensive record. And the Spartans clamped down, holding Brandon to seven points in the quarter to set the new mark.

Doerksen finished with a game-high 21 points, while Smith had 18. After breaking the Spartans single game rebounding record Friday with 21 boards, Tyrell Mara pulled down a game-high 14 Saturday.

Brandon was led by Vince who had nine points while O’Brian Wallace, who is the team’s leading scorer averaging 17.0 points per game, had six rebounds but was held to just five points.

The Spartans will wrap up the 2010-11 regular season next weekend when they travel to Manitoba for a two-game series while the Bobcats will return to Brandon next weekend as they will host Winnipeg in their final home game of the year.

NOTES: The Spartans shot 48.1 per cent while Brandon was 21.7 per cent…Brandon had 22 turnovers to TWU’s 14…TWU out-rebounded Brandon 59-25, which was only two rebounds shy of the school record of 61 the Spartans set Friday.
