Game log: Friday, Feb. 1 – 14 points, 20 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals, 1 block in 35 minutes played in a 77-71 home loss to Lethbridge / Saturday, Feb. 2 – 22 points, 11 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 assist, 1 block in 36 minutes played in an 79-76 home win over Lethbridge.

Playing in the final two regular season games of her historic Canada West career, Vasiliki Louka was her vintage, dominant self, posting a pair of double-doubles against the Lethbridge Pronghorns. On Friday, Louka proved why she is one of the best rebounders in conference history, grabbing 20 boards to go along with 14 points and dishing 7 assists.

The very next night, she had 22 points and 11 rebounds to power the Timberwolves to win, clinching the first winning season in program history.

Saturday’s double-double was her 17th of the season and the 47th of her career – both top three numbers in Canada West history. She also finishes the season with 253 rebounds, good for top spot in Canada West and all of U SPORTS.

UNBC travels to Trinity Western this Friday for a CW play-in game, as the conference basketball playoffs open.
