Schedule released for WolfPack basketball, volleyball

Think you'll be in the mood to watch athletes knock spheres either over or into a net this fall?

Then you'll want to take a gander at the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack's schedule as both the basketball volleyball teams unveiled their slate of games for next season this week.

The volleyball seasons will get underway first, as both the men's and women's teams hit the road to open the season with the Brandon Bobcats on Oct. 18 and 19. Brandon won Canada West last year on the men's side, while their women's team went 5-19.

TRU will have their volleyball home openers on Oct. 25, hosting the Calgary Dinos. The men will take the court first at 5 p.m. followed by the women's side around 7 p.m.

Basketball gets underway at the start of November, with the WolfPack hosting the Trinity Western Spartans to kick off their season. 

"Being at home to start the year is nice," says TRU men’s head coach Scott Clark in a news release. "At the end of the day, you play 10 at home and 10 on the road. You have to take care of your home games in order to be successful."

This will also be the first season for new women's head coach Goran Nogic. He'll make his head coaching debut on Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. 

The full men's and women's schedule can be found online.
