CALGARY – The University of Calgary Dinos swept the Mount Royal University Cougars 91-46 in men's basketball action Saturday night in the Jack Simpson Gym.

With the win, the Dinos improve to 14-0 on the year, while Mount Royal falls to 6-8.

After a rough turnover filled 16-13 first quarter in favour of the Dinos, they turned things around in the second quarter stepping up defensively. The Dinos only allowed the Cougars nine-second quarter points to head into the half with a 39-22 lead.

In the third quarter, the Dinos exploded offensively scoring 31 points in the frame.

In the final frame, the Dinos extended their lead.

Kristian Zjak led the Cougars in points contributing 10 points and seven rebounds, while Glen Yang added nine points and five rebounds in the loss.

Next for the Dinos is a four-game road trip, beginning with a trip to Edmonton to play MacEwan University on Jan. 11-12. The Cougars will face Lethbridge (6-6) next weekend for a home and away series.
