Daniel Ferguson erupted for a game-high 44 points as the Alberta Golden Bears defeated the Windsor Lancers in a thrilling and exciting 98-93 overtime victory in the opening game of the 2011 Graham Shootout hosted by  the Saskatchewan Huskies.

Ferguson was hot all evening, connecting on 12-of-25 shots, including six three-pointers, three of them coming in the extra session. He also pulled down eight rebounds and found his teammates open for seven assists.

Three other Golden Bears players reached double figures with Lyndon Taylor with 14 points, Robert Dewar with 12 and Sahr Saffa with 11 respectively.

Enrico Diloretto paced the Lancers 31 points. Evan Matthews also added 22 points.

Ferguson was the third leading scorer in 2010-11 with an average of 23 points and again will be amongst the top candidates for the 2011-12 CIS Men’s basketball scoring title.
