Lakehead basketball will play their first road games of the regular season in St Catharines against the Brock Badgers this weekend.
Saturday’s games are being advertised by the OUA as the largest-ever sporting event hosted by Brock Athletics in their 51-year history. Friday’s games at Brock are sold out, while Saturday’s games at the Meridian Centre, which holds over 5,300 fans, have a dwindling supply remaining and can be acquired via ticketmaster.
Lakehead Women (3-3)
Brock will test Lakehead’s ability to box-out and rebound, as shown in their +10.8 rebounding margin through 4 OUA games, all on the road. Their only loss of the season came to the then #1 ranked McMaster Marauders by three points. In their three victories (over Algoma, York and Queen’s), their smallest margin of victory was 17. This will be Brock’s home opener weekend.
“Brock is a very experienced and talented veteran team. Their core are 4th and 5th year seniors and they are playing very well this season. They’re a great transition team that can really run and score and a lot of that comes from their tenacious defense. They have a number of players that can score from both outside and inside making them very tough to contain. We will have a very tough challenge for us on the road so we will need to be prepared to take care of the ball, execute on offense and play smart defense.”
The Thunderwolf men will also have to contend with a Top 10 team versus Brock (3-1, #4 CIS).
Brock won their first three games of the season before dropping an 87-81 decision to Queen’s in Kingston last week.
“It’s a great opportunity for us this weekend. We’re going against the #4 team in the country, on the road, Central division games, and add that it’s Brock’s home openers. It all sets up for a great experience for our guys.”
