BU basketball teams lose to Winnipeg Wesmen

Both Brandon University Bobcats basketball teams are on the cusp of elimination from the Canada West conference playoff picture.

BU’s men’s and women’s squads both lost to the host Winnipeg Wesmen on Saturday night and their elimination number is now down to one.

Brandon’s men’s team led for the first 13 minutes before giving it up to Winnipeg and never getting it back. The Bobcats stayed within striking distance for most of the game, but couldn’t claw their way back. They were also hurt by making only seven of their 19 free-throw attempts.

Ali-Mounir Benabdelhak led a balanced scoring attack for Brandon (5-11) with 14 points, while Jordan Reaves added 13, Kenonte Ramsey had 11 and Ilarion Bonhomme posted 10. Steven Wesley led the Wesmen (11-5) with 23 points.

The Bobcats now trail both the Wesmen and Lethbridge Pronghorns (11-5) by six games for the final two playoff spots with only six games remaining. Brandon is off to B.C. to take on the Trinity Western Spartans (7-9) and Fraser Valley Cascades (11-5) on Friday and Saturday.

Meanwhile, the BU women’s basketball team also fell to 5-11 on the season with a 76-66 loss to the host Winnipeg Wesmen (8-8).

Cassie Cooke paced Brandon with 16 points and 11 rebounds, while Hamiota’s Keegan Robinson put up 15 points in her nine minutes of playing time. Aleah Bridges chipped in with 11 points, with Amy Williams adding 10. Megan Noonan had a game-high 17 for the Wesmen.

The Bobcats are now six games back of the Calgary Dinos (11-5) for the final playoff spot with six games remaining. Brandon will visit the Spartans (3-13) on Friday and the ninth-ranked Cascades (12-4) on Saturday.
