Mustangs pound Lambton


Western 84, Lambton 51... The Mustangs jumped out to an early 20-3 lead after just 6 minutes of play, creating several shot clock violations with their half-court “d” and getting a strong start from 6’1″ Alex Coote to dominate Lambton at Alumni Hall in London.  Coach Brad Campbell used his bench liberally as Western overcame what was described as a sloppy game Sunday in a tight win over Humber College.  Mustangs had 5 players in double figures including 4 different guys with 11 points apiece.  Next action for the Mustangs is in two weeks in Ottawa at Carleton’s House-Laughton tournament in an event that includes Laval Rouge et Or and UVic Vikes.  The young Mustangs have only one rotation regular 6’5″ Cam Morris who returned from major surgery with more than 2 seasons in the program but there is plenty of depth and much more athleticism with this group that looks to mature together in the same manner that the 2008-09 Mustangs matured with Matt Curtis, Brad Smith, Andrew Wedemire, Colin Laforme & Co.  That group took Carleton to the final possession of the national semi-final before bowing on an at the buzzer elbow jumper from Ravens Stuart Turnbull.
