Trinity Western men's basketball team falls to 0-6 on the season

The Trinity Western Spartans men’s basketball team is still in search of their first victory.

The Spartans fell 88-83 and 92-73 to the visiting Lethbridge Pronghorns over the weekend at the Langley Events Centre to fall to 0-6 on the Canada West season.

“It is all a game about percentages. We are getting more shots, just need to hit for a higher percentage or get to the free throw line more,” commented head coach Scott Allen.

“We made a great run in the fourth quarter but the legs just gave out. We need to learn to fight through that and work on our execution at the end of the game.”

The Pronghorns hit on 50 per cent of their field goals while the Spartans sunk just 37.5 per cent.

In Friday’s game, the Spartans were down just four after three quarters but could not get any closer in the final 10 minutes.

Justin Bakuteka was the high scorer in both games, finishing with 27 points the first night and 26 the next for the Spartans.

The Spartans will hit the road this weekend in Brandon for a pair of games.
