Ballers net two against Huskies

By Amanda VanSteelandt

On a roll, the Dinos men’s basketball team crushed the fifth-ranked University of Saskatchewan Huskies twice Nov. 2627.

On Friday, the Dinos had already amassed a massive 4526 lead by halftime. No doubt their just reward for shooting 57 per cent from the field, compared to a paltry 35 per cent for the Huskies in the first half. U of S pulled up their socks in the second half and pitted away at the lead, but were still handily defeated 8676.

Andrew Spagrud led the Huskies with 23 points and 18 rebounds. He played the entire game and came up with an astounding 13 defensive rebounds. Chris Wright marked up numbers for U of C with 21 points and seven rebounds, while Sandy Brar had 16 points, nine rebounds and four assists to his credit.

The second blow was dealt to Saskatchewan against a backdrop of shrieking pre-teens. Infused with love, one group of young ladies wrote a declaration of adoration for number 12 in red on the pizza box they won from Rex.

In stark contrast to the Dino fans, the Huskies’ unofficial cheerleaders showed up at halftime, and they were… husky. Shorts that short haven’t been seen since the Porn Star Cab and have never been seen on that much testosterone. Kudos to the one who put his pants back on.

Bursting out of the starting blocks again, the Dinos racked up a big 4828 lead by half-time. They out-shot the Huskies in the field 62 per cent to a weak 36 per cent in the first half.

Four Dinos players gave double-digit contributions. Rick Brar led with 18 points, Surinder Grewal put in 16, Sandy Brar added 14 points and nine rebounds and Chris Wright chipped in 13 points and eight rebounds.

And that ain’t all. The Dinos pulled off more rebounds than the Huskies, the teams had 37 and 30 respectively. The Dinos were also lethal with the free throw, netting it on 83 per cent of attempts.

The Huskies were led again in scoring by Andrew Spagrud who had 23 points and 13 rebounds. His team-mate Mike Linklater had 14 points after coming off the bench, 11 of those coming from the second half.

After this weekend the Dinos’ record has improved to 4-2. The Dinos will be enjoying a well earned rest until away games Jan. 7-8 at the University of Manitoba.
