Despite the championships being in their house this season, the University of Winnipeg College Wesmen are proving to be road warriors in their fight for the top seed in women’s basketball.
With a 62-56 win over top seed Red River College on Jan. 25, the College Wesmen moved to a perfect 4-0 on the road and inched closer to the Rebels for the coveted #1 seed at the Basketball Final 4’s.
Leading the way in the win was forward Brittany Rosenfelt. Filling her stat line with 11 points (on 4-of-7 shooting), seven rebounds and two blocks, she helped her team force a 2-2 season series split with the Rebels, in what could be a preview of this year’s championship final.
“Brittany is a force to be reckoned with… and doesn’t fear being assertive,” said College Wesmen head coach Suki Chhoeun. “She’s a forward who can hit the three and can effectively post players up inside.”
“She has scoring abilities that are dynamic, she’s a leader by example and most importantly, an athlete who comes to work both on her game days and in practice.”
The College Wesmen sit at 6-2 and can finish a perfect road record with wins over CMU and Providence on Feb. 1 and Feb. 15, respectively.
