Mustangs Top Lambton - Preseason Action
The Western Mustangs Varsity basketball team suited up in an exhibition match at Alumni Hall against the Lambton College Lions who made the trip down the highway from Sarnia, Ontario Wednesday night. Despite drastic differences in tuition prices between schools, the Wednesday night battle proved to a lot closer of a comparison.
Though the game did not mean anything, it did not play out that way as both teams took the floor with maximum intensity. A chess match ensued between Head Coaches Brad Campbell and James Grant as they were both throwing a plethora of different coverages and offensive strategies at each other. New Mustang recruits Julian Walker and Chris Clegg saw no shortage in playing time in the exhibition match, and showed that they can compete in the OUA style of game. The first half was an end to end affair which saw the Mustangs go into the dressing room ahead 42-39 at the end of two quarters.
