Mustangs go 0-3 at Laurentian Invitational

5th yr Pg Ryan Barbeau

The Mustangs fought hard but came up short in all three games this past weekend at the Laurentian Invitational in Sudbury. "We were right in all three games and had our chances to win all three." commented Coach Campbell. "We made too many mistakes in critical times during each game. We must continue to improve in our execution at both ends of the floor if we want  to closeout and win games".

Mustangs Captain 5th yr point guard Ryan Barbeau was selected a tournament all-star. Ryan led the Mustangs offensive attack in each game including an incredible 41 point effort in the tournament finale. "Ryan had an outstanding tournament. His 41pts in the Laurentian game were the most I have seen scored by a Mustang since Jim Grozelle's 50 pts in 2003." said Campbell.

- 3rd yr forward Adam Jespersen and 1st yr forward Larry Blyth did not play during the Tournament due to injury.
- 1st yr Forward Greg Morrow was also sidelined for the last two games of the tournament after playing vs Cape Breton on Friday with back trouble.
