TWU Spartans (75) vs. the University of Saskatchewan Huskies (80)

Huskies Win Numbers Game

Langley, British Columbia - Usually the home team has two more players to draw from for Canada West women's basketball conference games. But in Trinity Western University's (1-10) 80-75 loss to the University of Saskatchewan Huskies (5-6) on Friday it was not the case.

The Spartans are in the midst of an injury plagued season that no one would want. Because of these injuries the Spartans essentially played with only 7 players and only 1 experienced guard in tonight's game.

"Except for our three post players, everyone is playing out of position this year. They are playing in positions that they are not trained to play," said TWU head coach Rebecca Hays. "But that only helps us in the long run."

Playing with the short bench, the Spartans rallied and took it to the Huskies. For much of the first half the Spartans held the lead over the Huskies. A late push by Saskatchewan gave the Huskies a slim lead over the pesky Spartans, 45-42 at the end of the first half.

The Spartans started the second half strong and with just 2 ½ minutes gone in the half had outscored the Huskies 8-2 to build a 3 point lead, 50-47.

We talked about scoring early in transition, and we did it," said Hays. "Our players are starting to understand what playing the game is about. They are reading the defense to get good shots and they are not playing tentative."

The two teams battled back and forth and with 9 minutes to go in the game the Huskies held on to a slim 1 point lead, 61-60.

That's when the Spartan's short bench ran out of gas. In the next 5 minutes the Huskies won the game with a 16-5 run.

Down 10 with 10 with 4 minutes to go the Spartans made a push and cut into the Huskies lead. With:13 seconds to play, Katie Hall's 3 pointer cut the Huskie lead to 3 points, 78-75. But as the Spartans were running out of gas they were also running out of time as the Huskies ran out the clock for a 5 point victory.


Statistical Leaders

(Sask) Lisa Glemser (2nd yr, F, Clavet, SK) 15 pts, 3 assists, Lisa Bodnarus (2nd yr, P, Komarno, MB) 14 pts, 9 rebs and Claire Dore (5th yr, G/F, Regina, SK) 13 pts, 12 rebs.

(TWU) Katie Hall (2nd yr, F, Abbotsford, BC) 19 pts, 8 rebs, Trina Nelson (3rd yr, F, Lynden, WA) 16 pts, 9 rebs and Heidi DeHaan (1st yr, F, Lynden, WA) 14 pts, 8 rebs.

This season has been a tough one for the Spartans. They have lost over 53 league games to injury and the season is only half over. It is said that what does not kill you makes you stronger. If this is true the rest of Canada West better look out.

"Like Gideon who was outnumbered and blew his trumpets to victory we are playing with small numbers and we are blowing our trumpets, a trumpet for rebounding, a trumpet for defense and a trumpet for scoring early in transition," said Hays. "We have limited numbers, but that doesn't mean we can't play well."

Next up for the Spartans is the University of Saskatchewan Huskies on Saturday, January 6, 2001. Game time at Trinity Western University is set for 6:00 PM.
