Coaches, players and fans alike were all nervously excited to start off the season.
The men took the court and built up a good lead that would result in a close win 64-59.
The next day (Sunday November 4) the Lions took the court again, this time against Algoma University.
Algoma caught Lambton off guard in the first quarter of the game gaining a 8-24 lead very quickly.
When asked about the turnout of these two games head coach James Grant had this to say:
"We are a young team that is making some really costly mistakes right now. In the big picture we got the split we were aiming for but there is a lot more these players have to bring to the court each game. We have two days to prepare for St. Clair College and it's crucial we start doing things in a more controlled way."
The Lions have six away games until their next home game Tuesday, November 20.
