T’Birds looking to avenge last year’s sweep by the Bisons

In their first round playoff series, the UBC Thunderbirds (17-3) will host the University of Manitoba Bisons (12-8) in a best of 3 weekend, beginning Thursday at War Memorial Gym.

The T’Birds are a perfect 11-0 at home and are riding a 6 game win streak heading into tomorrow night’s game. UBC’s Head Coach Kevin Hanson spoke about the high quality basketball his players have been playing recently, especially in the final games of the regular season at home against Victoria.

“The last regular season weekend against UVIC was really good for us…playing against a rival team in that last weekend was very good preparation heading into playoffs.”
