Blazers Rebound For Home Win

CMU bounced-back from a Friday night loss to defeat the Assiniboine Community College Cougars 82-51 on Saturday afternoon on home court.

Trailing at the end of the first-quarter, the Blazer’s were able to collect themselves, find their chemistry and claw their way into to the lead before halftime, 30-26.

First-year forward Matej Juric, showed no signs of dizziness after he was forced out Friday night’s game with a head injury. The 6’5 sharp-shooter helped ice the win for the Blazers scoring 12 of his 14 points from beyond the three-point arc, while second-year guard Jacob Miller soared for 16 points and dished out 7 assists.

The offensive story of the game was first-year forward Sean Baergen. The product of Edmonton, Alberta, knocked down a team-high 21 points and drained 7-of-8 free throws for the Blazers. Miller also showed his expertise from the foul-line shooting 10-of-11.

Second-year center Wyatt Anders was his consistent-self, picking up a quiet double-double with 14 points and 13 rebounds in the win. Opposite big-man Steve Shields was the top scorer for the Cougars posting 23 points and 11 rebounds.

The next action for the Blazers is Wednesday night when they travel to Providence University College in Otterburne for an 8 PM tip-off with the Freemen. The two historic-rivals will meet back in Winnipeg at CMU on Friday night for what will be the Blazers next home game.
