Last Time Out

Regina ended their pre-season with a record of 4-8. Included in those losses was one to the Vikes in what was both team’s first game of the pre-season in late September.
By the Numbers
9: The number of players Regina has on their roster in their third, fourth or fifth year of U Sports eligibility
5: The number of games in a row that fifth-year Vike, Grant Sitton has led the team in points scored.

On the pre-season game these two teams played
“Both of us are somewhat familiar with each other. You can’t really put too much stock into that game, it was played over a month ago. It was the first for both of our teams so we’ve both changed quite a bit since then. I think we have a little bit of familiarity but that’s about it.”
“There is a lot more practicing in the pre-season than in our league schedule, I think that’s probably the exciting thing for the guys. It’s a long pre-season, we started in the middle of August and now it is November before we are actually playing games that count.”
