“It’s not the size of the dog in the fight that matters, but the size of the fight in the dog” – They went in ranked 5th in the country and with the other three teams in the Canada West Final Four ranked above them in the nation wide rankings. But they showed that this quote, one of my favorites, is too true as:
They won. Bigger than winning though is the fact that they qualified for NATIONALS in Saskatoon next weekend. The Cougars Women’s Basketball team, ranked number 5 in the country, have upset the number 1 team in the country, Simon Fraser University Clan. It was a very exciting game to listen to. The Cougs were down by 12 at one point in the first half and then they were up by 9 at another point. They then let the Clan back into the game but managed to retake the lead and expand that lead in the last 3 minutes of the game. Congratulations ladies! So proud of you and can’t wait to watch next weekend. Woohoo!!!!!!!
One more game to go and you can walk in as Canada West Champions…keep working ladies.
