Pack exit playoffs
It was fun while it lasted, but the party is over for the TRU WolfPack women’s basketball team.
TRU was swept 2-0 by the Saskatchewan Huskies in a best-of-three first-round Canada West playoff series on the weekend.
“I’m very proud of our effort this entire year,” WolfPack head coach Scott Reeves said.
The WolfPack lost 56-43 to the Huskies in Game 2 on Saturday, Feb. 25, in Saskatoon.
“We couldn’t hit shots in the first half, but played better in the second,” Reeves said.
TRU, in its first-ever Canada West playoff game, lost 66-59 on Friday, Feb. 24.
The WolfPack entered the playoffs as the No. 3 seed in the Pacific Division after posting a 9-9 mark in the regular season.
Saskatchewan was the No. 2 seed in the Prairie Division after finishing the season 15-5.
Saturday’s loss marked the last Canadian Interuniversity Sports game for three fifth-year WolfPack players, Michelle Dimond, Kaitlyn Widsten and Kailey Colonna.
Saskatchewan will compete in the Canada West Final Four next weekend, along with the Regina Cougars, University of the Fraser Valley Cascades and the UBC Thunderbirds.
