Bittersweet Friday for Basketball teams

Publication YearIssue Date 

If the people want exciting, exciting is what they got last weekend at the Dinos basketball games. At the last home games before the holidays, both the men's and women's teams put on a great show against the Brandon Bobcats.

The women's game started at 6 p.m. on Friday and the Dinos took the lead in a hurry. Up 20 points by halftime, the girls would go on to win the game 89-50.

Forward Ashley Hill scored 22 points and won player of the game. Close on her heels were guard Sarah Allison who netted 18 points and forward Alex Cole who chipped in another ten.

The men's game was just as exciting but suffered disappointing results. The dynamic Dinos struggled to keep up with the blazing Bobcats as they closed the first half at 34-34. The two teams went back and forth with both unable to take the lead and pull ahead until there was six minutes left in the game. Brandon extended their lead to six points with back-to-back-to-back baskets.

The Dinos went on to lose 70-77. Guard Andrew McGuinness scored 15 points, had four fouls and won player of the game. Guard Dustin Reding netted 16 points and forward Youri Anissovets chipped in 11.
