PACWEST Week 13 – December 1, 2013

Men’s Basketball Athlete of the Week

Jitinder Lohcham (Langara College)


Heading into the final weekend of league play before the break, the Langara Falcons sat tied for second place, two points behind the league leading VIU Mariners.  The Falcons played host to both the Camosun Chargers and VIU Mariners.

 On Friday night the Chargers game to town.  Fourth year forward Jitinder Lohcham had a tremendous game scoring 37 points, 8 rebounds, 3 blocked shots and 3 big dunks.  Lohcham, a Vancouver native, shot an impressive 11 for 11 from the foul line and 13 for 17 (76%) from the field in a 110-78 win. “Jit is capable of completely dominating games and he certainly asserted himself tonight,” said coach Eberhardt.

 On Saturday the Falcons had their first meeting of the season with undefeated Vancouver Island University and the reigning National Champions.  Lohcham scored 15 points, 4 rebounds and 1 assist and was once again a major contributor in the Falcons' 17 point victory. The 102-85 victory put Langara in a three way tie for 1st place in the PACWEST. The Falcons head into the holiday break with a 7-1 record.
