100 points per night for the ‘Pack

Women’s basketball stays at the top of their league after a dominant weekend

Women’s basketball scored over 100 points two nights in a row on the weekend of Jan. 10. They won both their games against the UBC Okanagan Heat.

Head coach Scott Reeves said the ‘Pack has only scored over 100 points one other time, in 2011, but it has never happened two nights in a row.

“We shot the ball extremely well, from three-point range and from two-point range. When you shoot over 50 per cent you’re going to score a lot of points,” Reeves said.

The 103-61 win against the Heat on Saturday gives the ‘Pack a seven game winning streak. The ‘Pack is currently leading the Explorer Division with nine wins and one loss.

The women had five players scoring in the double digits both nights. Rookies Emma Piggin and Michelle Bos scored the most points individually on Saturday night, with Piggin with 20 and Bos 19.

Bos is currently second highest for rebounds in the league, averaging 12.8 per game. Jorri Duxbury is fifth in the league for steals, averaging 30 per game.

“We have a pretty talented group. We work hard at getting good shots in our offence. You work at taking a good shot,” Reeves said.

“I’m really proud of their effort. Everyone did their job and that’s why we had success.”

With 10 games down and 10 to go, it’s still too early for Reeves to predict who will be hosting playoffs.

The top three teams in the league will make it to the post-season in March.
