(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor Lancers opened their 2015-16 season on a winning note with a 88-77 victory over the visiting Laurier Golden Hawks.

Leading the way was Alex Campbell with a game-high 30 points and a double-double completing 11 boards. Windsor also got a double-double from rookie Isiah Osborne as he dropped 21 points and pulled down 10 rebounds. Getting into double digits as well was Marko Kovac with 13 points.

Windsor controlled the game from the opening stanza as they ran to a 13 point lead before settling for 16-11 margin by the end of 10 minutes. In a too close for comfort 2nd quarter, Laurier managed to claw their way back into the game to go into the dressing rooms at half time with a 33-31 lead.

It took a full minute and a half to start the 3rd quarter before Windsor managed to draw even at 33. The Lancers ran their game and build an 11-point lead with only a Laurier layup with a second left on the clock cutting the lead to nine.

Windsor continued their rebound in the final frame as they went on two 9-point runs to put the game out of reach for the Hawks.

The Lancers travel to Waterloo for a match-up on Saturday. They return to the friendly confines of St Denis on November 13 to take on Western. Tip off is at 8:00 pm.
