Get used to seeing the University of Regina Cougar ladies basketball team on their home floor over the next few weeks.
The number 2 ranked team in Canada will not play another road game this season as they are the hosts for the USports Championship March 8-11, but before concentrating on that, the team is looking to capture a Canada West banner.
They start that quest Thursday night at the CKHS as UBC comes to town for Game 1 of a best of three quarterfinal starting at 7.
Regina finished the season with an 18-2 record while the Thunderbirds come in with a record of 10-10.
The two teams met earlier this year in Vancouver with Regina winning both handily by scores of 81-54 and 72-56.
This is the 23rd straight year the Cougars have made the playoffs.
Game 2 will go Friday night at the CKHS with a third game if needed going Saturday at the U of R in a 7 o’clock start both nights.
While the women’s team is at home, the men’s team is in playoff action on the road. Steve Burrows and his squad are in Lethbridge to meet the Pronghorns in a best of 3 which starts Thursday. The Cougars beat the Pronghorns twice in a weekend series in Regina in November.
