Lakehead Basketball travels to Sault Ste Marie this weekend for a single set of games, Saturday, January 23 against the Algoma Thunderbirds. Women at 2pm, Men at 4pm in Algoma’s newly-renovated George Leach Centre.
Lakehead Women (3-5)
Algoma’s main threats include Laura Meadows (8.5 pts/game), and Karissa Kajorinne, who hails from Thunder Bay and came through the Junior ‘Wolves development program. Kajorinne, along with Jordan Milos are frequent shooters from the outside and can heat up if not aggressively defended early on.
The Algoma Thunderbirds’ men (1-9) earned their first win of the season last week, 68-64 over the Western Mustangs in London. They also played Windsor to a 7-point game the following night. Algoma presents challenges with their level of hustle and athleticism, as showed in their 9.2 steals/game, 4th best in the OUA.
“We been going at it in practice now for three weeks,” says coach Furtado. “The guys are a little bit edgy, they’re sick and tired of beating up on each other every day in practice. We’re looking forward to getting back to playing. It’s just one game this weekend, so it makes it that much more important that we come out of this break playing as well as we can.”
Guards AJ Barber and Sean Clendinning lead the Thunderbirds in scoring, both with 11pts/game in OUA play. Clendinning scored 19 against Lakehead on October 10.
