(WINDSOR, ON) – Algoma University may want to rethink their application to the OUA after hosting a pair of games against the Windsor Lancers this past weekend. Emily Prevost led the Lancers with two big games in a lead-up to the end of the season. Windsor walked away with their 16th and 17th wins of the season by scores of 95-23 and 74-38.
Friday the 13th wasn’t unlucky for Windsor as the Lancers registered five players in double digit scoring. Korissa Williams led the squad with 24 points at one end of the court and 4 steals at the other. Prevost went 7-for-12 from the floor and a perfect 3-3 at the penalty line for 17 points in 25 minutes on the hardwood.
Jocelyn LaRocque, Andrea Kiss, and Cheyanne Roger rounded out the high scorers for Windsor with 14, 13, and 12 points, respectively. Roger was also a dominant force on defense hauling in 8 rebounds and making five huge blocks. Kiss also contributed 6 boards and Williams 5 in the win.
Brittany Brown opened the scoring for Algoma, but a Williams lay-up tied the score followed by a free throw by Roger and the Lancers were away to a 1st quarter lead of 27-5.
The 2nd frame didn’t fare much better for the Thunderbirds as Windsor pushed the score out to 58-13 by half-time.
A 25-10 3rd quarter led to a 12-0 shutout in the 4th as head coach Chantal Vallée pulled in on the reins with the game far out of Algoma’s reach.
Coming off the bench on Saturday, Prevost was a force in the paint as she drew 7 fouls and making the Thunderbirds pay by going 10-for-14 at the line. She added 6-of-9 from the floor to lead Windsor with 22 points, and just missed out on a double-double with 9 boards.
Caitlyn Longmuir tallied 15 points, in the win, and LaRocque and Kiss each contributed 13, and Roger outdid herself with six more blocks on St Valentine’s Day.
Windsor remains one game up on Laurier in the OUA West with a 17-1 record and two games remaining in the regular season. The team returns home on February 18 for Seniors Night as they tip-off against Waterloo at 6:00 pm.
