Dinos 92 Bobcats 71

The Calgary Dinos capitalized on a bruising inside presence and an outstanding game from 4th year wing-man Brian Finniss to batter the Brandon Bobcats in Canada West play at the Jack Simpson Gym tonight.

Calgary (4-7) took a 45-35 lead at the half as Finniss rung up 16 points. In dominating the boards the whole game, the Dinos got 12 rebounds from freshman Ross Bekkering and 11 from 5th year captain Chris Wright, who also notched 17 pts. Bekkering (10) and Cody Darrah (15) also tallied in double figures for the home team.

Robbie Sihota (6 pts. – 8 rebs.) , Tony Dhaliwal (9 pts), and DalbirDosanjh (7pts-4 assts.) were particularly effective for the Dinos off the bench. Calgary shot 32/64 from the field, and 21/24 (87.5%) from the line. They out-rebounded Brandon 46-33.

Brandon (also 4-7) got 21 pts. from their longe-range bomber Chad Jacobson, but only shot 37% as a team from the floor and 14/27 (52%) from the line.

The two teams go at it again Saturday night in Calgary at 8:00 pm.
