Sarah Robin provides the pace, but UNBC come out of Kamloops with two losses on weekend

Prince Rupert's Sarah Robin led the UNBC Timberwolves in scoring in their CIS regular season debut his weekend.

However a strong effort from the Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack secured two wins from the Friday and Saturday action.

The road trip south was definitely a learning thing for the very young UNBC squad, as the TRU crew for the most dominated much of the play. Taking leads early in both games and then shutting down any thought of a comeback from the Timberwolves.

By surrendering some 167 points in two games, the UNBC defensive play is probably going to be the subject of a bit of a review when the team gets back to practice in Prince George this week.

Turnovers told much of the story of the weekend with the Timberwolves surrendering 60 points on the two games to the problem.

As for putting some points on the board for the team in green, things went fairly well on Friday night which was their best evening of the two day trip, with Saturday's results delivering a bit of a setback.

On the offensive side of the game, Ms. Robin provided the scoring punch in both matches, with 27 minutes on the Court on Friday in the 85 to 55 loss to TRU, she accounted for 14 points on the night.

Saturday, the UNBC captain with 33 minutes on the Court, again had the highest point totals for the Timberwolves securing 11 of UNBC's 39 points in the 82-39 loss to Thompson Rivers.
