Bobcats edge Bisons

The Brandon University Bobcats men’s basketball team pulled out its first victory of the Canada West season at the University of Manitoba Friday night.

Jonar Huertas missed a three-pointer as time expired as the Bobcats (1-2) hung on for a 78-76 win over the Bisons (1-2).

James Elias, a 6-foot-11 centre, made five of six three-point attempts in the game to lead the Bobcats with 18 points. He also had five rebounds. Jordan Reaves added 17 points and six rebounds while Ilarion Bonhomme chipped in with 14 points and six boards. Kenonte Ramsey had 13 points, six rebounds and two steals for BU.

The two squads go head-to-head again tonight in Winnipeg.

Meanwhile, the BU women’s basketball team posted its best road result since February 2008, but head coach Novell Thomas still wasn’t happy.

Thomas felt his squad let the game slip away in their 62-61 overtime loss to the host Manitoba Bisons (1-2) on Friday by turning the ball over 25 times in the contest.

“We had multiple turnovers in the overtime period and part of the growing pains is we need to learn how to win the close ones,” said Thomas, whose team battled back from a nine-point halftime deficit. “We have to value possession of the ball much more.”

Aimee Johnston led the way for Brandon (0-3) with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Stephanie Haynes added 17 points and Carrera Lamoureux had 11 boards and eight points for BU.

The two teams will play again tonight.

“We’re looking forward to getting after it tomorrow night and having a solid showing for 40 minutes,” he said.
