2014-02-04

 

The men’s basketball team took on the CMU Blazers this past Friday night in the 3rd meeting between the two teams. Providence welcomed 2nd year guard Kendall Perpall to the lineup for the first time this season. In his first game with the Pilots, Kendall scored 32 points helping to carry the Pilots to a 95-88 victory over the host Blazers. Assistant coach Chris Funk had these words to say after the strong performance by the Pilots, "CMU came out with a big lineup hoping to create mismatches with our smaller one, but we were able to push the pace a lot and stretch the lead early. We made a few mistakes throughout, but for the most part we were able to do what we had hoped. It was nice to finish the game out on top, and it gives our guys a confidence boost heading into the final stretch of the season." Key players for the Pilots were, Romeo KC with 15 points, 4 rebounds, 6 assists, Nathan Warburton with 23 points, 10 rebounds, 1 block, and Kendall Perpall with 32 points 4 rebounds, 2 steals.
 
The Pilots women’s basketball team landed at CMU this past Friday for the 4th game of their 6 game series with the Blazers. The Pilots have struggled to put wins up after suffering injuries to key players this season. These two teams have matched up well with each other this season showing all 3 games with fewer than 10 point differences. Friday’s game showed the Blazers with the upper hand as they downed the Pilots 71-53. Coach Coursey had these words to say after the game, “I have taken our team defense for granted this year. My team has played strong defense throughout the season with only two or three games that stand out to me as poor defensive games. Tonight was rough; if we had played any defense tonight it would have been a different game. This was the second most points we have given up this season.” Key players for the Pilots were, Crystal Harms with 13 points, 13 rebounds, 2 blocks, 3 steals, Genadyne Charr with 6 points, 6 rebounds, 2 steals, and Breanne Nichol with a career high 21 points, 3 rebounds, 1 block
 
Men’s basketball played their second game of the weekend against the University of Winnipeg College Wesmen on Saturday evening at 7:00 pm in Otterburne MB. Providence has yet to beat the College Wesmen this season and was hoping to carry some momentum from the Friday night win against the Blazers. The College Wesmen proved to be a tough competitor, improving their win streak to 9 in a row with a 96-58 win over the Pilots. Assistant coach Chris Funk had these words to say after the game, "The guys came out with a good energy to start the game, but it seemed as though we just got tired as the game progressed. After a hard fought game last night, we just seemed to lose our edge. This wasn't a great game to get tired either because U of W came out on fire, hardly missing anything the whole game. I don't think I've seen a team shoot that well for some time. It was a tough loss, but we'll practice hard this week and bounce back." Key players for the Pilots were Nathan Warburton with 11 points, 7 rebounds, Johnathan Thompson with 15 points, 9 rebounds, and Kendall Perpall with 18 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists. The next action for the Pilots basketball teams is February 7th against Red River and February 8th against CMU. Both games will be played at home in Otterburne.
