UBC (2-0) 101, Lethbridge (1-2) 73 … 6’7″ center Luka Zaharijevic had 19 of his game-high 24 points in the first half, including 8 points and 4 rebounds during an early first quarter 16-0 run that broke open the game early to lead UBC to a decisive win over the Pronghorns. Thunderbirds swept a pair of games this weekend against the Pronghorns – UBC also won at home on Friday – who clearly were weary after last night’s 91-79 win at Fraser Valley in Abbotsford. The burly, 255 lbs. Zaharijevic, a fourth-year forward from Vancouver, established his career high with a dominant effort inside while fellow 6’7″ forward Conor Morgan added 21 points while guard Phil Jalalpoor added 13 points on 3-6 from 3. U.K. import 6’6″ Elliott Sentance led the Horns with 19 points and 8 rebounds but shot only 1-7 from 3.
Last night in Abbotsford, Horns 6’2″ guard Mike Pierzchala had a game-high 25 points on 10-of-13 shooting from the field, including 5-of-6 from three-point range. Lethbridge big men Zac Overwater (19 points), DeAngelo Ashley (14) and Elliott Sentance (11) also scored in double figures.
