The Seawolves Men’s basketball team hosted the Dalhousie Rams this weekend resulting in a blow out win for the home side, with a final score of 114-49.

The Seawolves came out on a surge to take the lead from the start with guard Paul Gerges scoring a cool 16 points and teammate Geoff Lemmon scoring 20 off the bench, leading the team.

At the half the Seawolves held a commanding lead 43-29 thanks to a impressive three point shooting display of 11-22 from the field.

Assistant coach for the Seawolves, Alan Rivers-Bowerman, commented on the first half. ” To be honest it was a garbage half. I found we weren’t mentally focused, but throughout the second half we cleaned it up.”

“We played okay offensively but defensively we needed to pick it up,” said Bowerman.

From the Rams side, the top scorers were the duo of guards, Brian Sawlyer with 23 points and Neel Amin contributing 18 points.

Rams head coach Andrew Barnhill stated, “we’re building for the future and as we go on I believe we’re getting better”

Barnhill continued, saying that “I wish we could accelerate the building process but what you see is the start of a new program.”

With this home win the Seawolves are at 6 wins and 10 losses and despite starting February off right are still in 5th place.

The Seawolves will be looking to add to their win tally as they travel to Holland college next weekend for a double header against the first place team.
