Wesmen men advance to basketball Final Four

  • Print

The University of Winnipeg Wesmen beat the Trinity Western Spartans 101-76 in the third and deciding game of the Canada West men’s basketball quarter-final series Sunday at the U of W Duckworth Centre.

The Wesmen advance to the Final Four tournament on Friday and Saturday (location TBA) for the first time since joining Canada West in 2000.

Wesmen third-year guard Travis Krahn of Winkler dropped five of Winnipeg's 16 three-point buckets while Benny Iko and Steven Wesley each scored three. The Wesmen shot 75 per cent from the field in the first quarter for a 31-17 lead that set the tone for the game.

"We got some good looks today and the guys were ready to step into it," said Wesmen head coach Mike Raimbault. "They played with confidence and we learned a lot from Friday night (86-78 loss) in terms of the mental focus that we have to be at to start the game. It’s a huge honour for us to be going to the Final Four."

Six Wesmen scored in double digits — Wesley with 19 points, Krahn and Jordan Clennon with 16, Iko with 15, Andrew Cunningham with 14 and Nolan Gooding with 11. Cunningham added 13 assists.
