We have been busy throughout October playing in some pre-season exhibition games. We started with a close 4pt loss to the Seattle Mountaineers early on in the month. We held a tournament in the middle of the month in which we bounced back to beat the York Yeomen by 2pts and fell to the Montana State-Northern Lights in Overtime by 5pts. We ended our preseason this past weekend with a loss to the Northwest University Eagles down in Kirkland, Washington.
The trip was good for us to get a taste for playing on the road as we have 5 newcomers to our team. Along with the previously mentioned DJ Oates and Vince Watson, we have Theron “Tre” Haslom, Troy “Mr. Music” Grant, and Kenny “The Mop” Monture. Kenny has been out with injury thus far and we are hoping to see him back soon!
After completing training camp, we have been striving to fine-tune our offensive and defensive schemes in practice. We have made great strides in just a month, but have a lot of room for improvement. Our continuous work as a unit is very promising and our exceptional team chemistry will allow us to move forward at a break-neck pace as we begin our season this upcoming weekend.
We will be hosting the UNBC Timberwolves this weekend as our Season Opener. Fridays game time is set for 8pm with Saturday’s set for 7pm. Both games will be held at the Tournament Capital Centre, hope to see you all out!

A big thanks to those of you who have attended some of our preseason games and we look forward to seeing you throughout the year! Feel free to approach any of us if you see us around Campus or in town. Our 6’10” twins, Blaz and Ivan Bozinovic, are a little bit intimidating but they’re harmless!
Thanks for tuning in!
