Horns women’s basketball team looks to keep winning streak going

By Lethbridge Herald on February 4, 2022.

The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns women’s basketball team will hit the road this weekend, but the men’s team will be staying at home.

After a bye weekend, the Horns head to Edmonton to face the MacEwan Griffins in Canada West action tonight and tomorrow.

However, the men’s game between the Pronghorns and the Griffins has been postponed as a result of the Griffins not having the minimum number of players available to safely compete due to COVID-19 related protocols.

No reschedule dates have yet been set and will be announced by the affected teams when determined.

The women’s game, however, is a go and tips off tonight at 6 p.m.

With only three weekends left in the regular season, the Pronghorns (6-4) enter this weekend riding a six-game winning streak and are tied for second in the Central Division with the Calgary Dinos.

The Pronghorns are ranked sixth in team offence, averaging 70.8 points per games, while also sitting in the top-10 defensively, ranked eighth (66.1 points per game).

The Pronghorns are also ranked second in the Canada West in free throw percentage at 76.8 per cent.

Through 10 conference games, the Pronghorns have three players averaging double digits in points per game, led by guard Jessica Haenni with 14.4 points per game.

Savannah McMahon and Haily Weaver are chipping in with 10.9 and 10.5 points per game.

The Griffins (2-7) sit at the bottom of the Central Division standings but are coming off an impressive win over the Calgary Dinos last weekend to earn a weekend split in Calgary.
