EDMONTON - The UNBC Timberwolves will be looking to pull off an upset for the ages this weekend. They're in Edmonton to face the 1st place University of Alberta Golden Bears in U-Sports Mens quarterfinal basketball action.
Prince George's Meryeta O'Dine will not be competing in the women's snowboard cross event in the Olympics after crashing in training and sustaining an injury, according to a Facebook post from her mom Virginia.
The Timberwolves women's basketball team leaves tonight for Winnipeg as they get set for their playoff matchup against the Wesmen on Thursday. UNBC and Winnipeg didn't play this year during the regular season but they did meet once in the pre-season.
The 2018 Prince George Iceman is coming up this Sunday, and it sounds like there's going to be a huge turnout with hundreds of people already signed up. A good chunk of those people will be first-timers, like the group of grade six students from Foothills Elementary School.
The Cougars have only picked up 1 win in their last 8 games and are falling further and further away from playoff contention. But with so many young players in the lineup, the most important thing for the rest of the season is development.
