Tuesday November 22, 2011

Fourth-year guard Warren Ward (London, Ont.) led the Gee-Gees to a perfect 2-0 home debut this past weekend at Montpetit Hall. On Friday night the 6’6 CIS veteran led all scorers with 22 points and 6 rebounds as the Gee-Gees beat the No. 6 Windsor Lancers 69-65.

Ward followed up that performance on Saturday with 21 points and 9 rebounds, eight of which were on the defensive board, in only 26 minutes of playing time.

“Warren responded tonight and looked like a leader,” commented Derouin, “When he’s playing like a leader, we’re definitely a team to be contended with. It’s more than just scoring, it’s the leadership and I thought he showed it out there with some big rebounds at crunch time, a big basket when we needed it,” said head coach James Derouin following Friday night’s game.
