GW Graham grad Lucas Mannes helping Calgary Dinos stay dominant

Playing key minutes off the bench, Mannes contributes to the top team in the Canada West conference

GW Graham grad Lucas Mannes helped his Calgary Dinos men’s basketball team stay unbeaten last weekend with two dominant wins over the Mount Royal Cougars.

Mannes played 15 productive minutes in the opener, posting eight rebounds, two assists and four points in an 80-61 win.

He had 10 points, three assists and four rebounds in the rematch as his Dinos thumped the Cougars 91-46.

Calgary is 14-0, first in the Canada West conference.

Tyus De Vries and his Thompson Rivers University Wolf Pack split their first two games of 2019.

Hitting the road last weekend to face the University of Northern B.C. Timberwolves (Prince George), De Vries and company dropped the first game 90-81.

The Sardis grad had a tough night, shooting 1-8 from the field in 25 minutes, recording three points.

He was the team’s second leading rebounder, pulling down seven.

The sophomore wing man grabbed another seven boards in the rematch, adding two assists and six points in 38 minutes as TRU recorded an 82-78 overtime win.

Thompson Rivers is 13th in the 17 team Canada West conference with a 5-7 record.

GW Graham grad Kyle Helsloot came off the bench in a pair of games for the Trinity Western Spartans against the Winnipeg Wesmen.

Helsloot’s Spartans dropped both matches (105-97, 83-55) and are still searching for their first win of the season.

They are 0-12 and tied with the Grant MacEwan Griffins for last place in the Canada West conference.
