Important Game Notes:
After the weekend, the WolfPack return home to host the University of Northern British Columbia Timberwolves on the Warner Rentals Court. Those games are December 1-2nd at the Tournament Capital Centre and are the last home games before the Christmas break.
Thoughts from WolfPack head coach Scott Reeves:
- Last road swing before the Christmas break, Does it feel like you have been on the road for ever? The first half has been a grind with all the travel for sure.
How has the team evolved over the last eight games? We have to shoot the ball better than we have been. We are getting shots, but need to shoot a better percentage
What are the positives you take away from the last two games against Lethbridge? We rebounded the ball better at both ends
What’s been the most inspiring? Perhaps the play of your younger players Our ability to compete and the performance of our freshman has been a positive
Could you talk about the development of Jordon Haggarty and Makayla Hoey–and to a certain extent Megan Rouault. They logged some big minutes for you of late. The freshman group have been gaining valuable experience which will pay off for us in the future
What have you heard about Mount Royal and how do you match up with them. They have a mix of youth and experience. They have been at home for the last 2 weeks so they will be ready to defend their home court.
