SPARTANS FALL TO GEE GEES
Fourth Ranked Ottawa hands TWU a 75-65 loss to open UBC Accent Inn Holiday Classic Tournament
 
VANCOUVER – A five minute stretch midway through the first half proved to be the difference in the Spartans opening game at UBC’s Accent Inn Holiday Classic. A 16 point first half deficit to the fourth ranked University of Ottawa Gee Gees was too much to overcome as Trinity Western lost 75-65 Wednesday afternoon at UBC.
 
TWU head coach Stan Peters felt that the layoff and Ottawa’s experience gave the Gee Gees the advantage early on. “They are a mature team with five fifth year players. We played well to start, but we froze in the third five minutes of the half and went away from our game, which cost us the game.”
 
The Spartans had trouble controlling the ball early on in the game. Numerous turnovers allowed Ottawa to take an early 11-7 lead six minutes into the contest. But TWU settled down and were able to tie up the game 14-14 after a three pointer by David Bron (Surrey) with 12 minutes remaining in the half.
 
The two teams matched each other for the next four minutes. At the 8:30 mark, TWU’s Joe Vroom (Abbotsford) made the score 22-22 with two foul shots. Then the Spartans hit a scoring drought. The Gee Gees used a 15-1 run over the next four minutes to build a 14 point lead, 37-23 with 4:22 remaining.
 
Ottawa continued to have the advantage as the half came to a close with the Gee Gees leading 49-33 at the break.
 
Ottawa’s Sean Peter (Ottawa) paced the Gee Gees in the first half with a solid 16 points. TWU’s Vroom passed the Spartans with eight points.
 
The Spartans came out hard to start the second half and scored the first four points to close to within 12 points trailing 49-37. But by the ten minute mark the Gee Gees had extended their lead to 22 points, leading 67-45 after a dunk by Ottawa’s Dax.Dessureault (Grande Prairie, AB).
 
A fast break lay-up by Nils Dobszinsky (Port Townsend, WA) got the Spartans going with 8:11 remaining. Back-to-back baskets by Brian Banman (Kelowna) cut the Gee Gees lead to 15 points with 7:30 remaining. Ottawa’s Chris Svenson (Minnesota, MN) hit a three point shot to make it an 18 point lead, 70-52 with 7:20 remaining.
 
With less than six and a half minutes remaining TWU extended their defense and put full court pressure on the Ottawa players. The defensive intensity paid off for the Spartans. TWU went on a 13-3 run and after a Michael Brouwer (Dover Bay) jumper the Spartans had cut the Gee Gees lead to eight points game, 73-65 with 2:30 remaining.
 
It would be the last basket of the night for the Spartans as the Gee Gees hung on to win 75-65.
“We kept emphasizing that everything that we do comes out of our defense, we can’t give up second shots, we have to pressure the shooters, and we have to get up on people and force them out of their comfort zone,” said Peters. “In the first half we let them do what they wanted to do, but down the stretch in the second half we figured them out and forced them out of their comfort zone. I’d love to play them again, now that we have figured them out.”
 
Second year post Michael Brouwer led the Spartans with 16 points, six rebounds and three blocks, while Sean Peter paced the Gee Gees with 16 points, five assists and five rebounds.
 
“Michael is learning every game and getting better every game,” said Peters. “I think that he gets more and more confident as he understands how he can create opportunities, how he can help us out defending and when he can block shots. He is going to continue to be a force.”
 
Next up for the Spartans is game two of the tournament against the Laurentian University Voyageurs. Game time at UBC is scheduled for a 5 pm tip-off Thursday afternoon.
 
Game Notes: Ottawa shot 51% (21-41) in the first half and 31% (9-29) in the second half to finish at 43%, while TWU shot 43% (12-28) in the first half and 34% (10-29) in the second half to finish at 38%...the Spartans had 27 turnovers in the game, while the Gee Gees had 13... TWU outrebounded Ottawa 48-36...
