Wesmen Men Advance to Championship Final

The second men’s semifinal of the 2011 MCAC Final 4 Basketball Championships between the #4 seeded Oak Hills Christian College Wolf Pack from Bemidji, Minnesota and the tournament favourite University of Winnipeg College Wesmen was what many expected it to be.

Both squads came out scoring early with a barrage of first half 3’s from Wesmen Jon Picicci (4), and Anwar Ahmed (3), as well as Oak Hills’ Thomas Connor, Justin Steinke, Josh Mueth, and Moe Blackmon. However, it was all Wesmen as they amassed 37 second quarter points to take a 61-30 lead into the break.

The second half saw a steady progression to the Wesmen lead as they continued to force turnovers and dominate the glass.

Given Isaac’s 8 points and consistent play at both ends earned him the player of the game for the Wesmen, while Moe Blackmon’s impressive game-high 25 points garnered him the Wolf Pack’s nod.

The Wesmen will now attempt to dethrone the 2-time defending conference champions from Red River at 3 p.m. Sunday.
