Freemen put out the Blaze


Providence University College basketball teams took a trip out to Canadian Mennonite University last Tuesday night.
The women got things started with a dominant performance against the Blazers. A quick start saw Providence lead 25-10 after the first quarter. The visiting squad put on a defensive clinic outscoring CMU 40 to 7 over the second and third quarters combined. The game was out of reach at that point and Providence took the game 71 to 28. Crystal Harms lead the blue and white with 20 points and 10 rebounds for her 5th double/double of the season. Head Coach Joel Coursey commented after the game. “The score indicated a big win but as we break the game down further, there are still areas we need to improve. Getting these wins are important as we focus on our ultimate goal of getting back into the MCAC finals again.”
The men’s game was tight all the way until the end. In this back and forth contest, Providence found themselves nipping at the heals of the Blazers all night. The Freemen were down 2 points in the 4th quarter when the Blazers coach was ejected from the game for an altercation with the ref. This seemed to spark CMU who came out of the time out energized. A late run put the Blazers up by 10 and that’s how it finished. In a hard fought battle, Providence left with an 86-76 loss to the home team.
Next games for the Providence basketball teams are this Friday as travel to Red River in Winnipeg.
