UFV splits with Calgary

Cascades women’s basketball team hosts Dinos to kick off exhibition schedule

The UFV Cascades women’s basketball team hit the hardwood for the first time in 2015-16 and walked away with mixed results.

UFV hosted the Calgary Dinos for a pair of games on Friday and Saturday, with the teams splitting the two-game set.

The Dinos outscored the Cascades 44-25 in the second half to take the game 69-57. Calgary shot 62 per cent in the second half to seal the victory.

Kayli Sartori led the way for UFV with 25 points, and new transfers Sydney Williams and Shayna Cameron chipped in with nine and eight points respectively.

The two teams met again on Saturday and the Cascades exacted a little revenge, winning 64-59. Katie Brink had a team-high 15 points and Sartori added 14 points.

The women take a break before heading to Regina to participate in the Cougars preseason tournament Oct. 8 to 10. They start the season at home on Nov. 6 against the UBCO Heat.

The men’s basketball team kicks off the preseason by hosting the Seattle Mountaineers on Saturday before heading to Victoria for a tournament running from Oct. 2 to 4. The men are set to play the Saskacthewan Huskies, Carleton Ravens and UVic Vikes at the tournament.

The men also start the Canada West regular season against the Heat on Nov. 6.
