CBC Bearcats basketball still seeking wins

Men's, women's basketball teams yet to win early in PacWest season

The Bearcats basketball teams aim to pick up wins this weekend.

It’s now two weeks into the PacWest basketball campaign, and the Columbia Bible College Bearcats men’s and women’s teams are still looking to get into the win column.

The teams hosted the Capilano University Blues on Nov. 10 and the Douglas College Royals on Nov. 12, coming up short in all four contests.

The women fell 97-36 to Douglas and 77-32 to Capilano. Vanessa Funk scored a team-high nine points against the Blues, with Racha Chalil scoring 10 points off the bench versus the Royals. In both games, the women fell behind early and failed to recover.

The men fared better, losing 91-54 to the Blues and falling 55-45 to the Royals. Umbori Watson led CBC in scoring in both games, with 11 against Capilano and 14 against Douglas. Bearcats rookie Jackson Strother pulled down an impressive 11 rebounds against the Royals.

Both teams now have a record of zero wins and four losses.

The teams next host the VIU Mariners on Friday, with the women tipping off at 6 p.m. and the men at 8 p.m. The Bearcats also host the Camosun Chargers on Saturday afternoon. Game times are 1 p.m. for the women and 3 p.m. for the men.
