The women's UNBC basketball team is snowballing downhill after another loss, their fourth straight. 

The women were crushed by the University of Saskatchewan Huskies 83-47 last night. Timberwolves guard Maria Mongomo did the best she could for UNBC, scoring over half the team's points in the loss. She finished the night with 28, going 10 of 20 from the field. But UNBC was outmatched on the boards, losing the rebound battle 52-22.

Nov. 29 wasn't any better, with another blowout loss to Saskatchewan, this time by a score of 92-60. Guard Madison Landry lead UNBC with 17 points, but they couldn't find an answer for Huskies guard Sabine Dukate who dropped 24. 

After a 6-0 start to the year, the lady Timberwolves have dropped four in a row and now head into the Christmas break sixth in Canada West standings. 

The men on the other hand, were able to leave Saskatchewan with at least one win. 

Losers of three-straight, the Timberwolves clawed out an 83-76 win on Friday to head into the Christmas break with a little momentum.

Jovan Leamy dropped 27 points along with seven rebounds and three assists while Lawrence Moore once again put on a fantastic display for Saskatchewan with 27 points, nine rebounds and three assists. 

On Thursday, Vova Pluzhnikov led UNBC with 20 points in a 98-80 loss where they couldn't find a way to contain Lawrence Moore who added 33 points for the Huskies. 

The men now sit eighth in Canada West standings with a 6-4 record.

Both teams will take to the floor for the first time in 2019 on Jan. 4 and 5 when Thompson Rivers University pays a visit to the Charles Jago Northern Sport Centre.
