(WINDSOR, ON) – The Gryphons were in town Saturday to take on the Lancers on the hardwood. Guelph was handed its walking papers as the Lancers dominated the game from tipoff to final buzzer on their way to a 92-75 victory.
Windsor’s 4th year hometown product, Rotimi Osuntola, logged a double-double to lead the lancers to their second win of the season. The 6’ 5” forward put up 17 points and grabbed 10 boards in addition to 3 assists and 1 steal in just 19 minutes of play.
Khalid Abdel-Gabar also contributed 17 points for Windsor as the Lancers received double digit scoring from five different players.
Windsor also played well off the ball by forcing 21 Guelph turnovers and controlling the boards at both ends of the court.
“We had been playing good basketball and it was fun to show how far this team has come since the beginning of the year,” said head coach Chris Oliver. “Defensively especially we played well as we disrupted our opponent’s offensive flow by denying passes and selectively trapping.”
Windsor now will travel to Toronto to face the Varsity Blues and the Ryserson Rams on November 14 and 15 respectively, before heading to the frontier when they attempt to tame the Thunderwolves of Lakehead University. Their next home game will be November 28 when they meet Brock at St Denis Fieldhouse. Tipoff is at 8:00 pm.
