Lakehead came out strong winning the first quarter 17-13 but fell short in the 2nd only scoring 9 points compared to Winnipeg’s 20. At half the men were down 33-26 but came out ready to play. Kache Kopec and Darnell Curtain hit 2 big threes near the end of the 3rd quarter bringing it to 39-38 but the men were unable to carry the momentum for the rest of the 4th.

Mike Theodore was big on the boards with 12 total rebounds. Lakehead overall out rebounded Winnipeg 56-41 but the Wesmen had both higher field goal and free-throw percentages.
