UNBC Timberwolves (6-8)
11th in Canada West Standings
69.1 Points Scored Per Game
72.9 Points Allowed Per Game
Scoring Leader: Vasiliki Louka, Maria Mongomo (17.4 Per Game)

Player to Watch:
Madison Landry, G
15.1 PPG, 3.2 RPG, 2.6 APG, 1.2 SPG
In her second Canada West season, the native of Prince George has elevated her game to an elite level. Her 15.1 points per game are third on the Timberwolves, and 14th in the conference, and twice as much as she scored in her freshman campaign. A long, athletic guard, Landry is consistent; she is top-ten in Canada West in field goal percentage.

Brandon Bobcats (2-10)
15th in Canada West Standings
71.3 Points Scored Per Game
81.3 Points Allowed Per Game
Scoring Leader: Keisha Cox (19.1 Per Game)
Rebounding Leader: Amy Williams (5.3 Per Game)
Assists Leader: Keisha Cox (3.2 Per Game)
Steals Leader: Keisha Cox (3.6 Per Game)
Blocks Leader: Lauren Anderson (0.4 Per Game)

Player to Watch:
Keisha Cox, G
19.1 PPG, 5.2 RPG, 3.2 APG, 3.6 SPG
Despite standing just five-foot-seven, Cox does it all for the Bobcats. She paces them in points, assists, and steals, and is second on the squad in rebounds. The Timberwolves will need to find a way to slow the dynamic guard, who sits third in the conference in scoring.

Quotes :
UNBC’s Devon Wood

On building on the sweep of UBCO…
“This weekend’s two wins really gives us confidence and energy. Keeping our momentum up, we need to carry on and do what we do.”

On this weekend’s matchup vs the Bobcats…
“Going into this weekend, Brandon is a really good defensive team, they’re scrappy and will be all over us. We’ve been practicing working against the press, and we have been working really hard to be able to play against them.”

On finding chemistry playing together…
“We need to play as a team. You can see we are a big threat when we play as a team to the best of our abilities. I think that will be big if we can do that this weekend.”
