OUA Friday: Lakehead upsets Brock; Big 3 win comfortably

Lakehead (7-14, 3-7) 75, Brock (10-5, 5-4) 64… Thunderwolves grabbed control of the game with a 9-2 run off the start of the fourth quarter, holding the visiting Badgers to just 1-6 shooting and 3 turnovers in the first 6 minutes of the fourth, upsetting Brock in the Thunderdome.  6’5″ Alexandre Robichaud was key down the stretch for Lakehead with 14 of his 17 points in the final frame including back-to-back 3’s midway through the fourth, the second giving Lakehead their largest lead to that point at 7 with just 3 1/2 minutes to play.  Later, Robichaud knocked down a jumper to give T-Wolves a 10 point lead.  6’0″ Henry Tan came off the bench for Lakehead to lead all scorers with 21 points including 14 in the second half.   Brock missed their last 7 threes of the game and shot just 22% from downtown, getting just 14 points, 8 rebounds and 5 turnovers from All-Canadian 6’7″ Dani Elgadi including 2 meaningless field goals in the final minute to absorb their second consecutive road loss.  6’1″ Mor Menashe had 15 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists for Lakehead in what was a defensive struggle for the most part with teams combining to shoot 35% and 14 for 54 from downtown.  Game two of the two game set in Thunder Bay goes tomorrow night.

Carleton (14-0, 8-0) 102, Nipissing (8-12, 4-7) 59... Ravens broke to a 48-18 lead, going deep into their bench early in a pasting of the visiting Lakers.  Carleton shot 54% (14 for 26) from downtown and 58% overall from the field with 6’4″ Connor Wood leading 5 Ravens in double figures with 19 points in only 20 minutes of play.

Ottawa (17-1, 8-0) 92, Laurentian (5-11, 4-7) 77... Gee-Gees dominated inside as 6’9″ Jean Pierre-Charles and 6’7″ Brody Maracle combined to score 40 points on 15-20 shooting from the floor and 6’2″ Adam Presutti knocked down four 3’s for 16 points allowing Ottawa to pull away in the second quarter for a comfortable win over the visiting Voyageurs.  6’3″ Caleb Agada was a force defensively for the Gee-Gees, getting credit for 7 steals, adding 16 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists.  6’1″ David Aromolaran led Laurentian with 20 points while star 6’2″ freshman Kadre Gray was held to just 13 points on 4-14 shooting including 0-4 from three by Ottawa’s tight perimeter “d”.
