In a do or die night against the sixth-seeded University of Fraser Valley Cascades, the 11th-seed UNBC Timberwolves men's basketball team fell 67-59 on Thursday. Although the TWolves came out firing in the first and held their ground in the second, the Cascades came up ahead through the third and fourth. 

"They came out with a lot of energy, and beat us to a lot of the fifty-fifty stuff," said UNBC coach Todd Jordan. "We got into some stretches where the ball stuck in our hands and didn't move, and we lost our momentum. We were fighting uphill the rest of the way." 

The win for the Cascades let's them advance to the Canada West playoff bracket, while the TWolves head back home as the loss marks the end of their playoff efforts.

"This is the first time in our history we have consecutively made playoffs, which is big for our program," said Jordan postgame. "We will miss our senior guys who worked really hard. They have all had important roles for our program. I am proud of our guys."
