Quotes:
UNBC’s Alexis Magrath


On not leaning on last year’s sweep of UBC…
“Last year we did really well when we played UBC, so we hope to build on that momentum. We won’t have our home fans, we won’t have our home court, our home rims. We have to stick to our basics, rebounding hard, and putting up our shots.”

On the matchup with the Thunderbirds…
“I am expecting them to come out hard against our top players, just like we are going to come out hard against theirs. We will have to rely on some players who they may not be thinking of, to keep us ahead of them.”


On the need for results with the playoffs approaching…
“It is really important for us to get wins this weekend, because we would like to host a playoff game, instead of going somewhere else. It’s also important to help us just make the playoffs, because we haven’t secured that spot yet.”
