Game log: Friday, Feb. 1 – 23 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 block in an 84-73 road loss to Alberta / Saturday, Feb. 2 – 31 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block, 1 steal in a 90-85 road win over Alberta.

The best shooter in the conference had another pair of double-doubles on the weekend, as the Thunderbirds earned the series split against a tough Alberta team on the road.

Friday night saw Filewich lead all players on the court with 23 points while adding a team-high 10 rebounds for her 11th double-double of the season. 

The third-year forward once again led all players in scoring Saturday with 31 points, just one off her season high, as the ‘Birds shook off the Pandas in overtime. Filewich's second straight double-double also got her into the top-ten all-time in double-doubles for a single season, finishing the campaign with 12.

Filewich capped off the regular season with a Canada West best 60.3 shooting percentage, the Winnipeg native also led the conference with 86 offensive rebounds while sitting fifth in total rebounds, third in blocks, and fourth in points per game. 

The Thunderbirds closed out the year with a 14-6 record and will host the Winnipeg Wesmen Saturday afternoon at War Memorial Gym for a Canada West play-in game looking to advance to the quarter-finals.
