Game log: Friday, Oct. 26 – 29 points, 5 rebounds, 1 steal in 92-87 home win over Saskatchewan / Saturday, Oct. 27 – 33 points, 4 rebounds, 7 assists, 1 steal, 1 block in a 102-93 home loss to Saskatchewan.

Jadon Cohee made his first Canada West weekend one to remember, leading all players in the conference with a combined 62 points.

The fourth-year transfer put up 29 points and five rebounds in UBC’s home opener Friday night, helping power the T-Birds to a 92-87 come-from-behind win over Saskatchewan. The product of Langley, B.C. was a workhorse for head coach Kevin Hanson, as he played a full 40 minutes in Saturday’s rematch putting up a game-high 33 points along with seven assists in a 102-93 loss to Saskatchewan.

Cohee’s 31 points per game and seven free throws per game are both tops through the Canada West’s opening weekend. 

After splitting their opening weekend, UBC has another strong test this week with a home-and-home series against the University of Victoria. UBC visits the Vikes Thursday night before hosting their cross-water rivals at War Memorial Gym on Saturday.
