'Wolves Open 2nd Half of OUA Season At Home

Waterloo Visits Thunderdome to Begin 2014
January 8, 2014 — Thunder Bay, Ont.
The advent of 2014 welcomes the Waterloo Warriors to the Thunderdome as the women's and men's basketball teams resume regular season play this weekend.

Game times are women at 6pm, men at 8pm, Friday and Saturday.

The men's team is coming off a successful non-conference tournament over the winter break, defeating Laval, UQAM, and Sheridan college.

The transition back to regular season play will hopefully be a smooth one for the 'Wolves against a struggling Warriors team (1-9) that won their first game of the regular season on Tuesday against Toronto, 86-80. They did so on the shoulders of 3rd year guard Jaspreet Gill, who scored 31 points (5 three-pointers), well above his season average of 16.5 ppg.

Coach Matt Erdman:

"We're looking forward to playing at home and getting back to a consistent OUA West routine. For our guys, it's been about coming in prepared and focussed, looking to build on each game. It's no secret the middle of our conference is a log jam and we need 40 minutes both nights in order to have a chance to beat a Waterloo team that has played well as of late."
