Huskies capture national women’s basketball title

Five years after winning their first U Sports title, the University of Saskatchewan (USask) women’s basketball team are national champions again.

The Huskie women’s basketball team showed why they were No.1 in the country for all but one week this season, rolling to an impressive 82-64 victory over the Brock University Badgers in Sunday’s championship final in Ottawa.

"For our fifth years to come in and win a national championship in their first year and then go out national champions, it couldn't be any more special," said Huskies head coach Lisa Thomaidis.

"I couldn't be happier, we played our best basketball at the right time, peaked at this tournament and we played unselfish, quality basketball. I'm so proud of what we did this year and what they did this weekend."
