SASKATOON – Everything was working for the University of Saskatchewan Huskies women's basketball team as they led wire-to-wire in a 108-30 victory over the Brandon Bobcats on the Ron & Jane Graham Centre Court on Nov. 23.
The 108 points scored was a season-high for the Huskies while their stifling defence limited Brandon to just 30, the fewest points of any team in the conference this season.
Six different players hit double-digits for the Huskies, while their extensive lead for much of the night also allowed every player on the roster to record a bucket.
Sabine Dukate led the way with 17 points in her 19 minutes on the floor with Megan Ahlstrom and Summer Masikewich adding 14 each.
Adrianna Proulx tallied a team-high eight points for Brandon. Also chipping in offensively were Kylie Weckend and Chelsea Misskey who recorded 6 points apiece.
Saskatchewan was dominant on both ends of the floor, out-shooting Brandon 56.3% to 17.8% while also collecting 29 more rebounds than the visitors.
A hot start for the Huskies was a sign of things to come on the night as they began the night on a 21-0 run during which they forced four turnovers and made 8-of-11 shots.
While a jumper from Misskey ended the run, the Huskies still led 33-7 after the first quarter of play.
With the lead well established, Saskatchewan was able to rotate through their roster for the remainder of the game and won the three remaining quarters by scores of 21-7, 31-7 and 23-9 respectively.
The victory moves Saskatchewan to 7-2 on the season where they are in a battle at the top of the standings, while the Bobcats fall to 2-5 with the loss.
These two teams will be back in action tomorrow night inside the Pac on the Ron & Jane Graham Centre Court with a scheduled start time of 6:00 p.m.
