Ooks Fall to Huskies

EDMONTON, ALTA. - The NAIT Ooks men's basketball team fell to the Keyano Huskies 76-71 Friday night in the NAIT Gymnasium. 

The Ooks trailed early and found themselves playing catch up for the majority of the game. The Keyano Huskies capitalized on some key mistakes by NAIT throughout the course of the game. In the fourth quarter, the Ooks tried to battle back only to have the game taken from them as Dante Dinter made a late three-pointer to solidify the Huskie victory.

"We made mental mistakes throughout the game which ended up costing us, we leave a shooter open that we shouldn't which resulted in a three-pointer icing the game. As bad as we played we still grinded it out and had a chance to win, so hopefully we can build on that for tomorrow, " said NAIT head coach, Mike Connolly following the game.
