Thunderwolves face Guelph in Weekend Double-Header

The Lakehead men’s and women’s basketball teams are off to Guelph this weekend to face the Gryphons on both Friday and Saturday night. Both teams captured at least 1 win this past weekend, and will be looking to carry their momentum into these important games.

Coach Kreiner:

“We head to Guelph for 2 huge games for our women’s basketball program. Guelph plays hard, rebounds the ball well, mix it up defensively while slowing you down and have a number of players that can score. They will be a tough match up for us with their length and athleticism and ability to put it on the floor to score. We will be preparing hard all week as we look to continue to improve and find ways to win. We are also looking forward to playing in Guelph brand new basketball facility, should be a great weekend of basketball.”

“This weekend will be a huge test for our team. We know whats at stake and so does Guelph. We need to prepare like we do and be ready for a physical, hard nosed game, in what looks like a great new athletic facility.” – Coach Furtado
