PRINCE GEORGE, B.C.
The Timberwolves open the season October 27th and 28th with the Calgary Dinos visiting the Northern Sport Centre.
UNBC will wrap up the regular season schedule welcoming Fraser Valley (12-8) to Prince George, January 26th and 27th.
For the second consecutive season, ratings performance index (RPI) will be used to seed playoff teams, while win/loss records will again be used to determine playoff qualification. The CW RPI was implemented last season to account for varying strengths of schedules, resulting from the conference’s unbalanced schedule.
In addition to the altered RPI formula, a new playoff format is also coming to CW basketball this season, as the conference eliminated the CW Final Four tournament in favour of a one-game championship hosted by the highest remaining seed.
The number of playoff teams (12) has not changed from last season. The first round of conference playoffs will see the top four seeds earn byes, while the remaining eight teams will play single-elimination games (12 @ 5, 11 @ 6, 10 @ 7, and 9 @ 8) between February 8 and 11.
A full list of package options will be available mid-August, when the conference unveils its new streaming platform, as part of the conference’s rebrand
