OTTAWA, ON (BasketballBuzz) – In a battle between two familiar Ontario University Sport (OUA) opponents the #7 Lakehead Thunderwolves produced a game-changing 11-0 run in the late stages of the fourth quarter to beat the #3 Ottawa Gee-Gees 66-62 and earn a trip to the 2013 CIS Men’s National Championship game at ScotiaBank place.

With Ottawa leading 53-49 with six minutes Lakehead’s senior guard Joseph Jones (Washington DC) buried consecutive three-pointers to swing the momentum in favor of the Thunderwolves and then Ottawa native Greg Carter followed-up with his own three-point play to give Lakehead a 60-53 cushion.

Jones finished with a game-high 24 points including some clutch free-throws (9-of-11) to end the hopes of an all Ottawa final.
