UNBC basketball teams are coming home from UBC empty handed after being swept by the Thunderbirds in Mens and Womens CIS basketball action.
On the mens side, the second ranked Thunderbirds showed why they will contend for a national championship. They dominated UNBC, posting a 125 – 75 win Friday night and a 109 – 61 victory Saturday. With the victories, UBC improved to 17 and 1 on the season while the Timberwolves fell to 4 and 14.
The womens games were more competitive. Friday UBC beat the lady T-Wolves 75 – 59 but barely escaped a Saturday night upset, holding off UNBC 76 – 72. UBC improved its record to 14 and 4 with the wins while UNBC fell to 6 and 12.
UNBC teams wind up their seasons next weekend when they host the University of Saskatchewan Huskies for games Friday and Saturday.
