Bobcats Basketball — Home Opener
The ’Cats take the court as the BU Bobcats basketball teams begin their seasons versus their long-time provincial rivals, the University of Manitoba Bisons.
Brandon will welcome the Bisons to the Healthy Living Centre on Friday, October 26. Tip-off is 6 p.m. for the women’s game and 8 p.m. for the men’s contest.
Brandon and Manitoba met in the opening round of the men’s basketball playoffs last season with the Bobcats being edged by the Bisons in a one-game series.
“The Bobcats and Bisons have a long history of intense games and the season opener will be no exception,” said BU coach Gil Cheung. “Manitoba ended our run last year and we look forward to the chance of exacting some revenge and getting off to a good start in the process.”
The Bobcat men’s team made the post-season for the second straight year after going 9-and-11 in 2017-18. On the women’s side, BU had a record of 3-and-17
