Several games for the UNBC Timberwolves men’s and women’s basketball teams have been postponed, due to COVID-19 concerns amongst they teams they were expected to face.

On Wednesday, Canada West announced that the University of Victoria Vikes women’s and men’s teams, UBC Thunderbirds women’s team and UBC Okanagan Heat men’s teams will not be able to field the minimum number of players to compete, because of the number of players isolating due to COVID-19 safety protocols.

The women’s T-wolves were scheduled to host the Vikes on Friday and the Thunderbirds on Sunday. Both games have now been postponed to unspecified future dates.

The UNBC women will head to Kelowna to take on the UBC Okanagan Heat on Saturday at 1 p.m. The move will free up the team's schedule later in the season to accommodate the make-up games against the Vikes and Thunderbirds.

The UNBC men were also slated to play the Vikes on Friday and that game has been been postponed. However, the male T-wolves will host the Thunderbirds on Sunday. Tip-off is at 3 p.m. at the Charles Jago Northern Sport Centre.
