Sarah Robin paces Timberwolves in final home game appearances for UNBC
January and now into February featuring some steady progress for a squad that featured a large number of players inexperienced in high level university basketball.
The latest example of their dedication to their game was found this weekend in a pair of games at the UNBC campus, which saw the T Wolves looking to break back into the win column in two hard fought games with the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades.
And for Prince Rupert's Sarah Robinson, the weekend showcased her leadership skills once again, as the team captain took charge on the court with two solid performances in front of a boisterous home crowd at the UNBC sports Centre.
Ms. Robin rattled off the most minutes on the court and the most points for the T Wolves on the weekend, reaching thirty three minutes of play on Friday night and accounting for 11 points for the home side.
While in Saturday night's wrap up to the weekend against the University of Fraser Valley, Ms. Robin played for thirty minutes and provided 10 points towards the T Wolves final total of 51.
And while Friday night saw UNBC take the play to UFV and keeping within striking distance to the end of the 88 to 75 loss, Saturday night was more of a clinic from the Cascades who found some cracks in the T Wolves defence to gain a fairly convincing 85 to 52 victory.
The games marked the last home games at the UNBC campus for Ms. Robin, one two graduating players on the Timberwolves, she and Kellieanne Fluit of Lynden, Washington have two more games in UNBC colours.
The two soon to be grads and the rest of their Timberwolves squad are back in action this weekend, as they wrap up their regular season with two games against the University of British Columbia Okanagan in Kelowna .
Those games will be available on the Canada West video stream on Friday and Saturday evening.
UNBC basketball also celebrated the success of their men's program on the weekend, as the Timberwolves Men's team claimed their First ever Canada West playoff berth with a 69-57 win over the Cascades.
