T-wolves drop seventh-straight

The visiting UBC Okanagan Heat were a little too much to handle for UNBC's women's basketball team Friday night.

Despite the minus-21 degree Celsius temperatures outside, the Heat warmed up inside to defeat the Timberwolves 72-58 at the Northern Sport Centre.

It was the seventh-straight loss for the T-wolves in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport Canada West Explorers Division who fall to 0-7. The Heat improve to 3-4.

UBCO had a narrow two-point cushion for a 34-32 half-time lead and went on a 14-3 run in the first four minutes of the third quarter.

UNBC took a time-out and then went on a 8-2 run in a two-minute span to trail 50-45. The team still found itself behind 62-54 to begin the fourth quarter.

That's when the Heat's defence took over and held the Timberwolves to four points in the final 10 minutes to secure the win.

Fifth-year forward Sarah Robin led UNBC with a team-high 20 points.

Rookie forward Vasiliki Louka found herself in foul trouble with four fouls in the first half and only saw limited playing time in the second half. She finished the game with five points and 11 rebounds.

Jessica Jazdarehee, the Heat's third-year guard, led the Kelowna-based squad with 17 points

The two squads clash again tonight at 5 p.m.
