The UBC Okanagan women’s basketball team played two games in two nights, struggling to score in both as they fell first to Fraser Valley (79-50) on Friday, Sep 28, and then to Trinity Western (75-59) on Saturday, Sep 29.
The Heat struggled against the Fraser Valley Cascades in a special community engagement game at G.W. Graham in Chilliwack Friday. The much larger and more experienced Cascades took advantage of the Heat, who were missing starting post Krystal Schouten (3rd year, Winnipeg, MB), unable to dress for the team’s first two games while dealing with a lingering ankle injury.
