TWU Spartans (64) vs the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds (76)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Slow Start Stings Spartans
UBC still undefeated with 76-64 win over TWU

LANGLEY, British Columbia – The Trinity Western University men’s basketball team were slow getting out of gates Thursday night against the University of British Columbia. That is something that you do not want to do against the number on ranked team in the CIS, who are on a quest to finish the season a perfect 20-0. The cross town rivals made the Spartans pay as the Thunderbirds used a 26-7 start to take down TWU 76-64. The loss drops the Spartans to 10-9, while the win keeps UBC perfect at 19-0.

“UBC did a good job of taking away the things that we wanted to do. But we had some very open looks and we missed them, we just did not shoot the ball well at all,” said TWU Head Coach Stan Peters. “Having a buy week and trying to figure out our rotations with out Trevor [Nerdahl] and Nils [Dobszinsky] hurt us. We didn’t have any rhythm or feel for the game at the start.”

After finishing the half trailing UBC 45-22, TWU came out strong to start the second half. The Spartans outscored the Thunderbirds 16-8 to make it a 13 point game, 53-40 with just over 14 minutes remaining in the game. Two minutes later a pair of Michael Brouwer (Nanaimo) foul shots made it a 12 point game, with TWU down 56-44. That was as close as the Spartans would get. The Thunderbirds took the air out of the Spartan Faithful by going on a 18-6 run to take a 74-50 lead with just under five minutes remaining.

“I was happy with our first five minutes of the second half. We were able to put them in uncomfortable situations, but we had a few mental lapses and they were able to capitalize on them,” said Peters.

TWU kept plugging away at the UBC lead, but they were unable to overcome the huge hole that they had dug themselves in the first ten minutes of the game.

The two teams will have a day off before finishing off the Canada West regular season Saturday night. Game time at TWU is set for 8 pm. The game will be broadcast live on TWU’s Spartan Web Radio (SWR), which can be linked off of the TWU web site www.gospartans.ca. “If we can cut down their transition and force them to beat us five on five then I think that we have a shot [at beating them on Saturday],” added Peters.

Michael Brouwer with 15 points and 11 rebounds and Jon Schmidt (Rosedale) with 14 points led the Spartans, while Pasha Bains (Richmond) with 29 points and Casey Archibald (Salmon Arm) with 16 points led the Thunderbirds.

Game Notes: TWU was extremely cold shooting from the field to start the game. Ten minutes into the game they were shooting at 6%, while UBC was over 50%...TWU’s SWR will be on the road with the Spartans during the playoffs, which begin Friday-Sun, Feb 17-19 against the University of Victoria in Victoria...
