Bisons top T-wolves

The University of Manitoba Bisons held off the UNBC Timberwolves 76-69 in Friday night Canada West women's basketball at the Northern Sport Centre.

The teams traded the lead multiple times in the fourth quarter but the Bisons came out on top, thanks largely to the efforts of point guard Taylor Randall, who hit a string of jump shots as time was ticking down.

"Getting wins on the road in this league is very important, and we'll look to continue this (today)," said Randall, who finished with 20 points and seven assists. "We stayed true to our game plan on the night and shots seemed to fall for us throughout."

UNBC's Maria Mongomo led all shooters with 23 points and also hauled in nine rebounds. Vasiliki Louka of the T-wolves added 16 points, 16 rebounds and five assists.

The Bisons led 36-28 at the half and were up 52-51 after three quarters.

"We came out flat, with low energy and didn't play to our strengths," said Madison Landry of the Timberwolves. "Although we lost, I think we can build on it and come out (today) with a different mindset."

The loss was the first at home this season for the Timberwolves.

The teams will meet again today at the NSC. Opening tip-off is at 5 p.m.

Later Friday night, the Manitoba men defeated the UNBC men 66-63. James Wagner paced the winners with 25 points. For the T-wolves, Jovan Leamy drained a game-high 28.

The Bisons were up 44-29 at halftime.

The rematch goes tonight at 7.
