Head to Head: The Heat men are 1-5 against the Huskies in regular season games and 0-2 in preseason.
UBC Okanagan last weekend: The Heat played a great game in Winnipeg Friday night yet fell just a few points shy of a win to the third place Winnepeg Wesmen (25-19, 25-18, 19-25, 19-25, 15-12), followed by a loss Saturday.
Huskies Last weekend: The Huskies took victory over the Calgary Dinos (3-2, 3-1) last weekend both Friday and Saturday, like the Heat Saskatchewan has also been swept by top ranked Alberta; however the Huskies did manage a split in Winnipeg versus the Wesmen.

Saskatchewan is has made 157 (10th) attack errors, 98 service errors (11th), 44 reception errors (6th), and 8 ball handling errors (3rd). UBC Okanagan in those same categories: 174 (8th) attack errors, 106 service errors (7th), 61 reception errors (1st), and 1 ball handling error (11th).
