College Wesmen Spoil CMU Opener

Balanced second-half scoring helped the University of Winnipeg College Wesmen to a 67-50 win on Friday night in MCAC women’s basketball over the Blazers at CMU.

First-year wing Samantha Curtis held the hot-hand for CMU scoring a game-high 12 points in what was her first action in the MCAC. The 5’9 product of Linden Christian showed her willingness to put the ball on the floor and drive to the basket, getting to the free-throw line four times in the second quarter and helping her team to a 28-28 half-time score against the 2011-12 regular season champs.

Wesmen forward Jaime Brown scored 8 of her team-high 11 points in the second-half as Winnipeg pulled-away, outscoring CMU 39-23 over the final 20 minutes and holding the Blazers to only 11 points in the fourth.

Fellow Linden Christian product Darcie Donald scored 11 for the Blazers while center Kathleen Klippenstein chipped-in 9 points, 7 of which came from the free-throw line where she shot 70% on the night.

The Blazers travel to Otterburne tonight to meet up with the Providence Freemen; a finalist in last season’s MCAC championship match after shocking the province when they knocked-off the #1 seed College Wesmen last March. Tip-off is scheduled for 6 PM at Providence University College.
