Henry Tan and Bacarius Dinkins carried the men’s basketball team to a 75-63 win over the visiting Nipissing Lakers on Friday evening.
The dynamic duo, with Tan’s speed off the dribble with a touch for finishing inside, combined with Dinkins’ raw power and inside presence, proved to be too much for the Lakers to handle.
When Tan wasn’t getting to the free throw line or blowing by defenders, Dinkins was dunking, rebounding or finishing inside. In a quick sequence in the fourth quarter, Tan beat his defender, had his layup attempt blocked off the back board, only to have Dinkins fly in, catch the ball in mid-air and softly complete the play without skipping a beat.
Alex Robichaud and Taner Parrington combined to go 3-for-8 from behind the arc for a total of 23 points.
For the Lakers, Jordon Campbell scored 18 points and Marvin Ngonadi had 16 points with 5 rebounds. Marcus Lewis had an impressive 11-point, 13-rebound outing.
“Our guys competed tonight and gave it everything they had which is great to see. We need to clean up some execution things down the stretch so we don’t let teams back into the game. We now need to focus our attention on getting physically and mentally prepared for Laurentian.”
