The UNBC Men’s basketball team will look to build on a record-setting 2017-2018 campaign, and now know their opponents for the upcoming Canada West season. The conference schedule has been officially released, with the Timberwolves opening the season October 26th, in Calgary against the Mount Royal Cougars.
Late January will provide a challenge for the TWolves. They play at the Alberta Golden Bears, who went 19-1 last season, on January 18th and 19th. The following weekend, it’s a trip to UBC to play the 17-3 Thunderbirds on January 25th and 26th.
Coach Todd Jordan’s team went 10-10 last year, earning its second playoff appearance, and the first postseason win in program history.
Conference regular season play stretches until February 2, before playoff action takes the court between Feb. 8 and March 2. The CW best-of-three semis are slated for Feb. 21-24, while the single-game conference championships will be played either March 1 or 2.
The 2019 U SPORTS Final 8s are set for March 7-10, with Ryerson University welcoming the best women’s teams to Toronto, while Dalhousie University gets set to host the top men’s squads in Halifax.
Again this season, you can watch every CW basketball regular season and playoff game on Canada West TV – the official streaming home of Canada West. 2018-19 Canada West TV passes go on sale Thursday afternoon.
