After helping his team to a one game lead on the Lethbridge Pronghorns in their fight for the Final Playoff Spot in the Moutain Division of Canada West, Chris Wright is this week’s Dino of the Week.

Despite the loss at Lethbridge on Friday, Chris Wright came out determined to lead his team to victory. Playing aggressively in the early portions of the game, Chris made several Jump Shots to help the Dinos fight off the emotion that the home team Horns were playing with. Chris led the way for the Dinos shooting 8 for 17 from the field, grabbing 2 offensive rebounds and 7 defensive, while posting 16 points in 32 minutes of action. Chris also added an assist and a steal in the game which saw the Pronghorns hit a tough shot over an outstretched Dino defender with just 3.2 seconds left.

Saturday was the Final Regular Season home game for Chris Wright in a Dino uniform. The Jack Simpson Gymnasium was packed to bid Chris farewell. Chris did not disappoint the home fans. He posted 14 points on 4 for 8 from the floor and 8 for 10 from the free throw line in 25 minutes of action. This also included 3 key free throws down the stretch to put the game out of reach for the Pronghorns. Chris was also a demon on the boards grabbing 11 including 5 offensive rebounds. The Dinos captured the game by a score of 76-71 to take a 2 point advantage over the Pronghorns for the final playoff spot in the Mountain Division.
