The University of Alberta Golden Bears basketball team cruised past the visiting Lethbridge Pronghorns 80-59, winning Game 1 of their best of three Canada West quarter-final series, Thursday night at Saville Community Sports Centre. This was the first Canada West playoff meeting between the provincial foes since 2000, when the Golden Bears knocked off Lethbridge in Game 3 of the conference final. Fourth-year forward Mamadou Gueye (198-F-93) finished with a double-double, recording game-high's of 20 points and 10 boards. Geoff Pippus (196-G), Austin Waddoups (188-PG, college: Salt Lake CC) and Dwan Williams also scored in the double digits, with Pippus' 14 points the next highest on the Bears. Zac Overwater (203-G) led the 'Horns with 18 points on just 4/15 shooting, but made 10 of his 13 free throws on Thursday. Elliott Sentance (193-F-94, college: Mineral Area CC) also had himself a strong outing in the loss, totalling 14 points, nine boards and an assist. Despite entering Game 1 riding a three game win streak, including a series sweep last weekend and a double overtime win over Alberta in the conference finale, the Lethbridge Pronghorns came out completely flat on Thursday. The 'Horns scored just six first quarter points, shooting a paltry 2/17 in the opening quarter. The Bears took advantage of a 42% shooting quarter, thanks to six from Pippus on a pair of threes, to take a 20-6 lead. Neither team shot well in the second frame, as the Bears allowed the visitors to get back into the game with a stronger showing in the second. Overwater scored seven of his 18 in the quarter, while Dejon Burdeaux dropped in four points, as an 8-0 Lethbridge run cut the Alberta lead to just eight at the half. The teams exchanged runs throughout the third, with the Bears going up by as much as 14, before a pair of late rallies by Lethbridge cutting the Alberta lead back to eight entering the fourth. However, the depth of the Bears proved to be too much for Lethbridge to overcome, as they suffered a 29-16 beating in the fourth. Gueye went off in the final quarter, scoring 10 points alone on 5/6 shooting, adding six rebounds and an assist. Waddoups, Williams and Pippus also combined for 10 of the Bears 29 points in the dominating quarter. The Golden Bears will set their sights on a Canada West Final Four berth tomorrow night, with Game 2 set for 8:00 p.m. at Saville Community Sports Centre. Courtesy of: canadawest.org

One of the Panthers' all-time greats, Tyler Scott (190-G), put on a show in his final home game, scoring 35 points to lead UPEI past the Cape Breton Capers 86-82. The Panthers (6-12) erased a 10-point halftime deficit behind Scott's dominant second half, where he scored 23 of his 35 points. "It's been a good three years," said an emotional Scott. "I love these guys. They laid it all on the line for me this year and I won't forget them." While the season has been a disappointment, the final win at home meant a great deal to the All-Canadian guard. "It felt good to get this win," he said. "Last home game, in front of a great crowd, in probably the best gym in the AUS. It was all good." Fellow seniors Jake Kendrick (185-G), Mark Matheson (196-F), Lorenzo Parker (190-G) and Dut Dut each got the start tonight in honour of their commitment and dedication to UPEI. After the ceremony, both teams got back to business. Capers' guard Aaron Hayles caught fire to begin the game, draining three consecutive triples as he led his team to a quick 11-4 advantage, forcing the Panthers to call a timeout. Scott took over following the breather, scoring five straight points to trim the deficit 16-13. But the Capers (0-18) responded with an 8-2 run to extend the lead 24-15. Hayles scored all 12 of his points in the first quarter, where Cape Breton led 30-22.

He finished with a team-high 24 points and 17 rebounds. Jack Macaulay (185-G) found his shooting touch in the quarter, scoring nine of his 15 points to lead Cape Breton at halftime, 55-45. Down big, Parker took it upon himself to drive the ball to the basket on multiple occasions leading to several made free throws. The aggressive plan of attack paid off as UPEI trimmed the deficit to 55-53 behind an 8-0 spurt. The Panthers continued to have a strong third quarter, outscoring their opponent 16-8, while holding them to a miniscule 14.3 per cent shooting, But the Capers still held a slim 63-61 edge heading into the final quarter. After Scott drained a triple to open the fourth, the Panthers didn't look back. Scott scored 18 of his team's 25 fourth-quarter points to complete the comeback bid 86-82. Dut finished with a monster double-double with 15 points and 19 rebounds. He also set a Panther single-season school record with 215 rebounds.
