Player To Watch :
Alina Shakirova, G
9.1 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 1.6 APG, 1.0 SPG
A swiss-army knife for the Timberwolves, Shakirova is often tasked with defending the opposition’s best offensive player. Despite standing just five-foot-seven, the native of Moscow is a willing, physical battler, who has seen upticks in her points per game and rebounds per game.

Saskatchewan Huskies  – Record (8-2)
1st in Canada West Standings
77.0 Points Scored Per Game
51.5 Points Allowed Per Game
Scoring Leader: Sabine Dukate (13.8 Per Game)
Rebounding Leader: Summer Masikewich (8.2 Per Game)
Assists Leader: Libby Epoch (3.7 Per Game)
Steals Leader: Katriana Philipenko (1.9 Per Game)
Blocks Leader: Summer Masikewich (0.8 Per Game)


Player To Watch :
Summer Masikewich, F
13.1 PPG, 8.2 RPG, 1.3 APG
A Canada West all-star, Masikewich quietly goes about her business at the offensive and defensive end of the floor for the Huskies. Standing six-foot-two, she helped Saskatchewan to a National silver medal at the 2018 U SPORTS championships, and will go head to head with UNBC’s Vasiliki Louka in this important matchup.
