Women’s Basketball: Weekend Update

By Scott Lepp

It was like when the Lakers play host to the Clippers, or in high school when the junior squad challenges the varsity team–either way, you can count on a lopsided finish. With Lethbridge in town last weekend, it was a chance for the Dinos’ bench to collect some very valuable experience. It was one of those weekends where the lady Dinos could work more on the basics without the risk of a mistake costing them the game. The hosts showed off their stifling defence and forced the Pronghorns to 33 turnovers in the first game alone.

Over the course of the two games, the Dinos held their provincial rivals to a dismal 91 points while torching the Pronghorns for 167 of their own. Every player in uniform managed to put a point on the board on Friday night, but Alison McGinn outshone them all and brought her "A" game, scoring a career-high 29 points. Game two was paced by Jen Goldade’s solid 19-point performance.

The Dinos upped their record to 11-5 while the Pronghorns still have a goose egg in their win column. The U of C plays host to the Saskatchewan Huskies this weekend; this is a good chance to improve their playoff positioning.
