LONDON – The Lakehead men’s basketball team (1-12) was defeated 84-75 by the Western Mustangs (7-6) in their first game of the weekend doubleheader in London, ON.
The Thunderwolves opened the first quarter strong with an early lead on the Mustangs. Lakehead had a 25-19 advantage after the first ten minutes but the Wolves struggled a little in the second as Western took back the lead at the half (45-39).
Western only outscored the Wolves 39-36 in the second half, but Lakehead was unable to close the gap, ultimately losing 84-75.
“I thought we competed but really hurt ourselves with our consistency on the defensive glass and by putting Western on the free throw line. We get another shot tomorrow” – Coach Ryan Thomson
