Victoria, BC—The Thompson Rivers University WolfPack women’s basketball team fell in their final exhibition game of the 2016-17 preseason.

The WolfPack were on the short end of a 57-53 decision to the University of Saskatchewan Huskies at a tournament held at the University of Victoria.

There were no official stats available.  TRU was down 13-8 after the first quarter but led 30-28 at the half.

“It was a way better defensive effort today,” said TRU head coach Scott Reeves. “We got quality shots but didn’t hit enough of them.”

The WolfPack finished with an exhibition record of 3-6. They open up their Canada West regular season next Friday (Nov 4) on the Warner Rentals Court at the Tournament Capital Centre. They face the University of BC Thunderbirds.  Tip off will be 6 pm.
