Mustangs Slam Bisons - Preseason Action

Roger Cumberbatch

Fans of Western Women’s Basketball should keep in mind, that Friday’s game at Alumni Hall, was only their second preseason game.  These games count, but they don’t count.  The pre-season, is the time for players and coaches to become familiar, or re-familiar with each other.  Practicing and learning offensive and defensive sets against your own teammates, is nice, but actual game competition is the only chance for the coaching staff to evaluate the team and put the best lineup on the floor.  Western played Humber College the previous night and was victorious 70-52.  Friday evening, the Manitoba Bisons were the opponents for the Mustangs, an opportunity to face USports level competition.  Western’s Head Coach Brian Cheng, was hopeful for his team to push the pace and really get the rust off from a long off season.
