WolfPack pushes for playoff spot
Excellent piece by Nathan Crosby, Sports Editor of the Omega, Thompson Rivers University's Independent Student Newspaper recapping the 'Pack's first half and previewing what it may take for TRU to grab a Canada West playoff spot.
Eight games into the year the WolfPack men are a .500 basketball team at 4-4.
They have already matched last year’s win total.
With the first half of the season coming to a close, optimism has filled the atmosphere at the Tournament Capital Centre that just maybe, the ‘Pack are going to surprise a few in the Canada West this year by making the playoffs.
“When I looked at our schedule, I thought, if we could be 4-4, 5-3, it would be great,” WolfPack head coach Scott Clark said.
“Championships aren’t won in the first half of the year, but they can be lost, and we put ourselves in a position where that isn’t the case.”
