Wolves jockeying for playoff positions
On the women's side, the Wolves are doing a little chasing as well.
After a 1-1 split with Concordia, the 12-6 Wolves take over sole possession of third place in the North Division, four points back of the 14-4 Griffins.
The Griffins bench may be a bit shorter, but don't let that deceive you, said Wolves head coach Kim Gravengard.
"They come out and surprise you," she said. "They don't look like they're much, but they work hard and run the very basic things.
"They stick with that, so we're just going to continue our game from Saturday and keep pushing from there (with) lots of pressure up front, forcing them to not use their point guard and having to rely on somebody to bring it up and take their key post player out of the play.
"Those are the things we did last Saturday against Concordia (a 66-63 win)."
The 16-4 Thunder sit four points ahead of the Griffins.
With a couple of wins this weekend, the Wolves stand to jump right into the top-two fray.
"A sweep against Grant MacEwan would be big. That would change the win-loss record between us and them and that should help push us up to second and stay in second," said Gravengard
