The Trinity Western University Spartans played a strong defensive game in holding the UBC Okanagan Heat to just 50 points, winning by 13, 63-50. With the victory the Spartans completed the weekend sweep of their inter-province foe.
With the two wins this weekend the Spartans are now 6-6 in conference play. The Heat have lost three in a row and move to 2-8.
“I think we were a little tired. We gave a lot of time out to our starters last night so they didn’t have that spunk and that energy that we needed,” reflected Heat head coach Heather Semeniuk. “I saw a step up in defense from Trinity as well. They basically put full court pressure on us the whole game and they’re tenacious. I don’t think we’ve played against a team so far this year that plays that tenaciously. They’re a good team.”
