The UNBC Timberwolves women's basketball team proved inhospitable hosts for the UBC Thunderbirds in the first game of a weekend doubleheader on Friday night at Northern Sport Centre.
The two teams were evenly matched tied 15-15 after the first quarter but the T'wolves offense was just too much for UBC defenders to handle and the final buzzer sounded on a 80-63 UNBC win.
Leading the way for the Timberwolves were Madison Landry with 24 points and Alina Shakirova with 22 points. Keylyn Filewich and Jessica Hanson were the top scorers for the Thunderbirds with 13 points and 12 points respectively.
With the win UNBC's record now stands at 2-3 while the loss gives the Thunderbirds a record of 2-3.
The same two teams will meet again on Saturday night at 5 p.m. at Northern Sport Centre.
