^Special Event: For the Saturday night women’s basketball matchup with the Spartans the UBC Okanagan Heat will play in the Shoot for the Cure game.

The UBC Okanagan athletics department will once again have special pink Heat T-Shirts for sale with the proceeds going towards the CBCF.
A ceremonial tip-off with a special pink Wilson ‘Shoot for the Cure CIS basketball’ will highlight the fundraiser just before the conference action gets underway at 5 p.m. on the Saturday in the gym of UBC’s Okanagan campus.
Women’s Basketball – A disappointing road-trip that was plagued by flu-like symptoms will see the 2-10 UBC Okanagan Heat return to the confines of their home gymnasium for a two game series versus the 2-10 Trinity Western Spartans beginning Friday, January 17th.
The Heat’s post presence was subdued by illness last weekend, which did not help UBC Okanagan’s cause in their two games versus Regina and Brandon to open up 2014. The Heat would lose 88-56 to the 10-2 Regina Cougars on Friday night, and would fight valiantly in their Saturday night game versus 3-9 Brandon, ultimately losing by seven, 70-63.
Trinity Western faired a little better in their first two games of 2014, posting a win in their Friday night game, 66-57 over the 3-9 Manitoba Bisons. However, the Spartans would fall in their journey to Winnipeg, falling 80-61 to the 6-6 Wesmen.
The Heat and Spartans will meet both Friday, January 17th, and Saturday, January 18th, at UBC’s Okanagan campus gymnasium from Kelowna, BC. Tip-off for Friday night’s game is scheduled for 6 p.m., while Saturday night’s tip-off is scheduled for 5 p.m.
Men’s Basketball – The 2-10 Heat will return home after coming up empty-handed versus two Prairie Division foes to open up 2014, as UBC Okanagan will play host to the 6-6 Trinity Western Spartans Friday and Saturday evening from UBC’s Okanagan campus gymnasium.
Last weekend, the Heat were unable to solve both the Regina Cougars and the Brandon Bobcats, falling in both contests, 72-64 and 74-66.
As for Trinity, their journey to the province of Manitoba proved somewhat fruitful, as the Spartans were able to pick up a slim victory over the 1-11 Manitoba Bisons Friday evening 85-84 on a Robert Rodriguez field-goal with nine seconds left. Saturday night’s affair versus 7-5 Winnipeg was much the same, but this time, Trinity would be on the losing side of a game ending by one point, losing 80-79.
The Spartans will make their way to Kelowna, BC to face the Heat beginning on Friday, January 17th and concluding on Saturday, January 18th. Tipoff for Friday is scheduled for 8 p.m. PST, while tipoff for Saturday is scheduled for 7 p.m. PST.
Women’s Volleyball – After being unable to hand UBC their first loss of the season, fourth-ranked 10-4 UBC Okanagan will make their way to Langley for another tough test in the form of the fifth-ranked 10-4 Trinity Western for two games beginning Friday, January 17th.
In what was a surprising two-game series versus UBC to open the second half of the 2013-2014 season, the Heat showed their youth versus their sister institution, losing both games 3-1 (25-20, 25-15, 25-20, 25-18) and 3-0 (25-10, 25-16, 25-21). The first game saw the Heat surrender the first 10 points of the match to UBC, while the second saw UBC jump out to the early 15-4 advantage.
For Trinity, the Spartans resumed the 2014 portion of their season at home versus the Mount Royal Cougars, earning two straight set victories 3-0 (25-15, 25-19, 25-15) and 3-0 (25-15, 25-17, 25-20) to push their current win streak to 5 games.
The Spartans and Heat will face off Friday, January 17th at 6 p.m. PST from Langley Events Centre, and conclude the series on Saturday, January 18th at 5 p.m. PST.
Men’s Volleyball – The 4-10 Heat played the role of David to open up 2014 with two victories over third-ranked UBC, and look to continue their two game unbeaten streak this weekend, January 17th and 18th, versus Canada West’s top team: the (tied for first in CIS) 13-1 Trinity Western Spartans.
After a disappointing 2013 portion of their season, the Heat looked like a whole new squad in their two victories over UBC, 3-0 (25-16, 25-21, 25-22) and 3-2 (25-23, 25-27, 25-23, 18-25, 15-11), exploiting the kinks in the armour of the third-ranked T-Birds.
Meanwhile, No. 2 Trinity Western continues to roll, making easy work of visiting Mount Royal last weekend 3-0 (25-18, 25-15, 25-19) and 3-1 (29-31, 25-13, 25-21, 25-23). The Spartans are currently riding a seven game winning streak, matching their season high winning streak, which began on October 25th and extended to November 16th.
The Heat will look to continue their win streak of upsets this weekend, January 17th and 18th, from the Langley Events Centre in Langley, BC versus the Trinity Western Spartans. Friday’s game is scheduled for 8 p.m. PST, while Saturday’s game begins an hour earlier at 7 p.m. PST.
