Lucas Mannes and Calgary Dinos complete undefeated Canada West season

The Dinos beat the Thompson Rivers Wolf Pack twice last weekend to finish the campaign 20-0.

The Canada West scoreboard is a weekly update of how Chilliwack high school grads are doing in Canada West university basketball.

The final weekend of regular season play in the Canada West basketball conference saw Lucas Mannes and his Calgary Dinos complete an undefeated season.

Two home court wins over Thompson Rivers University gave Calgary a 20-0 record and a bye through the first round of the playoffs.

Mannes came off the bench to score nine points in Friday’s opener, a 71-62 Dino win. He only shot two of 10 from the field, but one of those was a three point bomb. He added four free-throws, eight rebounds, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes.

Playing the final regular season game of his university career Saturday, Mannes was in the starting lineup and played 33 minutes in a 91-59 Calgary win. The GW Graham grad scored a game-high 25 points, shooting eight of 14 from the field and five of 11 from the free-throw line.

He added nine rebounds, five assists and three steals in an impressive all-around effort.

Sardis grad Tyus De Vries suited up for Thompson Rivers in both games, playing a combined 64 minutes.

He produced 10 points, five rebounds and an assist in Friday’s game, and was limited to two points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal in Saturday’s rematch.

His Wolf Pack finished with a record of 6-14, finishing 14th in the 17 team league and missing the playoffs.


While Calgary finished an unbeaten season, Kyle Helsloot’s Trinity Western Spartans wrapped up a winless campaign with a pair of road losses at the University of the Fraser Valley.

The Spartans fell 106-75 on Friday and 94-73 on Saturday.

Helsloot, a GW Graham grad, played nine minutes in the first game, blocking one UFV shot. He played five minutes in the rematch and produced four points on two-of-four shooting.

TRU finished 0-20, 17th and last in the Canada West standings.
