Thunderwolves head West to take on Alberta and UBC

| Basketball (M)

The Lakehead men’s basketball team is heading to Edmonton, AB to take on the Alberta Golden Bears on Friday and UBC Thunderbirds on Saturday for their last preseason games before the regular season starts.

“This weekend we get a shot to play two talented and competitive CanWest teams who will test us with their physicality, discipline and shot making. After not playing for a few weeks it will be exciting to see how we’ve improved and what we still need to work on ahead of the OUA schedule,” says head coach Ryan Thomson.

The Golden Bears are 3-0 this pre-season so far and last year were 19-1, finishing second at the Canada West Championship but losing in U SPORTS consolation semifinal.

UBC was 17-3 last year in conference play but lost to Calgary in the Canada West semi-final games who ended up winning both the Canada West and U SPORTS Championship.

All games at the Saville Community Sport Centre (Edmonton, Alberta)
Thunderwolves vs Alberta @ 8pm Friday, October 19
Thunderwolves vs UBC @ 5pm Saturday, October 20
