Bobcats drop pair of games to Golden Bears

It was a frustrating weekend for the Brandon University Bobcats men’s basketball team.

BU head coach Gil Cheung believed his team was in a position to win one or both of its games against the University of Alberta Golden Bears in their Canada West conference season-opening weekend, but Brandon left Edmonton with a pair of losses.

“I don’t know what to say,” Cheung said after Saturday night’s 78-64 defeat.

“A little more experienced team executed down the stretch and we didn’t. We had some breakdowns, but there are some positives to take away from this and some lessons learned this weekend. We had good performances, but as a team we have to be a little bit better, especially executing at both ends of the court.”

Brandon had a solid showing on Saturday, outscored by only a single point by the defending Canada West champions in three quarters. However, they were outscored 20-9 in the second quarter and just couldn’t come back. American import Kenonte Ramsey led the Bobcats with 23 points, while Michael (Reggie) Smith had 15.

In Friday night’s late game, Ramsey scored 18 points in Brandon’s 81-67 loss to Alberta. Jordan Reaves put up 15 points and Ali-Mounir Benabdelhak added 14.

Meanwhile, the BU women’s basketball team fell to 0-2 with a 66-32 loss to the Alberta Pandas on Saturday. Aimee Johnston led the Brandon charge with seven points and seven rebounds, while rookie Elsa Langill added six points.
