The Rams were out to assert themselves early on, as their star guard Aaron Best scored five straight points to open the game. Lakehead would get their first 10 points from Bacarius Dinkins, but the rest of the team did little offensively in the first quarter. Rookie Quincy Johnson did hit a three, but the ‘Wolves were in a deep hole, 27-13 after 10 minutes.
The ‘Wolves trailed 49-29 at halftime, and once the lead stretched to 30 points in the third quarter, coach Manny Furtado sent in his reserves for the remainder.
On a positive note, Lakehead’s bench players out-played those of Ryerson’s, winning the final quarter, 22-7.
Dinkins finished with 18 points and 7 rebounds for the ‘Wolves, while rookie Kache Kopec came off the bench and made the most of his 24 minutes, scoring 20 points (4-of-8 from three) to lead his team in scoring.
The Thunderwolves take on the Toronto Varsity Blues tomorrow at 8pm.
