The Brandon University Bobcats basketball teams will wrap up the regular season this weekend at the Healthy Living Centre by raising money through the “Shoot for the Cure” initiative.
The program raises money to fight breast cancer, with all 50/50 revenue from this weekend’s Bobcats games donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Bobcat Chantel Gaslard will try to shoot as many free throws as possible in one minute at halftime of Friday’s game, while Aimee Johnston will do the same on Saturday. Fans can pledge $1, $2 or $5 for every foul shot made in that minute, with all proceeds going to the CBCF.
The Bobcats will take on the Regina Cougars this weekend, with the women’s games on Friday at 6 p.m., and Saturday at 5 p.m. Men’s action is slated for Friday at 8 p.m., and Saturday at 7 p.m.
Meanwhile, the Bobcats men’s volleyball team — which remained ranked eighth in the country this week — will travel to Saskatoon to face the Saskatchewan Huskies in the first round of the Canada West playoffs this weekend.
The best-of-three series is scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, if necessary.
Brandon (13-9) finished sixth in the regular season, four points back of third-place Saskatchewan (15-7).
