WolfPack women’s basketball team will see their first game action of the 2016-17 Canada West season this weekend.
The ’Pack are visiting Calgary for two games against the University of Calgary Dinos beginning Friday, Sept 23.
“It’s been a good start to our training and this will be nice to get some game action against a very good Calgary team,” said WolfPack head coach Scott Reeves. “We are battling some injuries but it will be nice to play some games instead of practice.”
Reeves has this evaluation of training camp: “We are getting fitter and the offense is starting to have a better flow. At the beginning of the year, you want to try and get your systems in and then test them in games. We will then go back and fix things for our next competition.”
The coach has been impressed with his player’s commitment to getting better every day.
“We are seeing improvements in shooting, fitness and execution.”
As far as the weekend goes, Reeves said the expectations are simple: “We want to see how our team defense is. In practice, we tend to cheat too much because the defense knows what the offense is running. Offensively, we want to get into offense efficiently and get good shots.”
The WolfPack will be back at home for an exhibition against the Douglas College Royals (PACWEST) on Saturday, Oct. 1 at the TRU Gym. They then host the MacEwan University Griffins in exhibition action Oct. 15 at the Tournament Capital Centre.
Their Canada West season opener is Friday, Nov. 4, on the Warner Rentals Court at TCC. Tipoff will be 6 p.m.
