This year's outstanding season from the Lakehead University men's basketball team has led to OUA West honours for four of the players and Coach Scott Morrison. Morrison was named Coach of the year, Guard Jamie Searle was named to the first team all-star squad and is also the West nomination for the CIS Ken Shields Award. Yoosrie Salhia was named to the second team all-star squad, Greg Carter is this year's defensive player of the year and Ryan Thomson was named to the all rookie team.
The Lakehead University men's Basketball team will look to continue their Cinderella story tomorrow when they visit Windsor in the West Division final. Lakehead earned their spot in the final by winning their first ever home playoff game last weekend. Coach Scott Morrison says improved team play and tough defence has led to this year's outstanding season.
There could be some changes to the lineup for the Thunderwolves this weekend when they travel to London for game two of the OUA Western Conference final against the Western Mustangs. Starting Goalie Alex Dupius could be staying home after waking up with a sore leg yesterday. Dupius has led the Wolves to 5 straight wins in the playoffs and made 34 saves to lead Lakehead to a 4-1 game one win over the Mustangs Wednesday. If Dupius can't make the trip Kyle Moir will step back into the crease as the starter.
