The men’s basketball team (4-4) picked up its biggest win of the season as it knocked off then-No. 5 ranked Saskatchewan 75-73 last Friday. The previous night, TWU lost 87-75 to No. 4 Alberta.

The women’s basketball team (1-7) lost both of its weekend games, losing 79-52 to No. 3 Alberta and 81-57 to No. 4 Saskatchewan.
