Brandon clinched home court advantage in the opening round thanks to a fourth-place finish in the conference with a 17-and-7 record. Home court was huge for BU during the regular season as they posted a near perfect record of 10-and-1.
The Bobcats split their home-and-home series with the Wesmen during the regular season. Brandon fell in five sets in Winnipeg on November 28, but rebounded with a five-set victory of their own on December 1 at the HLC.
Brandon also came out on top in their two exhibition meetings with Winnipeg. The Bobcats won a four-set showdown at the end of September as part of BU’s pre-season tournament. They later eliminated Winnipeg from the Wesmen Classic during the Christmas break. The Bobcats swept Winnipeg in the semifinals en route to winning the tournament title.
BU and Winnipeg have a long history and it includes a previous showdown in the post-season. The last time the Bobcats hosted in the playoffs was 2014-15 when BU earned a hard-fought quarter-final series win over the Wesmen.
