What happens when you cross a pack of wolves with a Dinosaur? Apparently, you just get a Dinosaur that is a little less hungry. The Dinos women's basketball team paid a visit to the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack Jan. 27-28 and came home with a belly full of laurels.

"I really like where we are right now," head coach Shawnee Harle explained. "But I still think that we've got a little bit more improvements left in us. I would expect to see those coming out in the next two to four weeks."

While the Dinos women's basketball team may not have played to the best of their abilities Jan. 13-14, the University of Alberta Pandas lacked the ability to snag both wins. The Dinos were 11 games into a winning streak, and improving each weekend, before the Pandas paid their annual visit to the Jack Simpson Gymnasium.

Weather reports indicate there was an excessive amount of heat radiating from the Jack Simpson Gymnasium Jan. 13-14. The Dinos men's basketball team rubbed sneakers with the University of Alberta Golden Bears for the second time this season.

This time the friction took place on home soil. The finished product was an electric weekend capped off with the best hometown basketball game this season, and 3,116 fans who immediately had to confer with their cardiologists.

Like Much Music's Dance Mix '93, the Dinos women's basketball team continue to prove they're the top of the crop. They went into the holidays on a six-game winning streak and, after a quick turkey dinner, returned to the University of Calgary still hungry for more. Dinner was served in the form of the annual Holiday Hoops tournament in the Jack Simpson Gymnasium.

  Montana makes Dinos moan morbidlyPDF files may take a moment to load

The Brandon University Bobcats bob-cut the Dinos men's basketball team deep Jan. 6-7 as the weekend's results were not to plan.

Friday night left fans optimistic as the Dinos took to the floor with cohesion and energy. They jolted the Bobcats by shooting 50 per cent from the field and 88 per cent from the charity stripe. Captain Chris Wright and protege Ross Bekkering--ranked second and sixth respectively in Canada West for defensive rebounds--helped the Dinos out-rebound the Bobcats 46-33.

While there's no evidence that in the wild a Dinosaur would devour a Bobcat, a controlled experiment in the Jack Simpson Gymnasium has indicated that would be the case. In other words, the Dinos women's basketball team didn't cut the Brandon University Bobcats much slack in their games Jan. 6-7.

  From foul trouble to double-doublePDF files may take a moment to load

The Dinos men's basketball team has a little more reason to strut about campus this week: they gave everything they had and eventually came out on top Dec. 3-4. True, they're 3-7 in league play with a half-season of work ahead of them, but with shooting averages like they had these games, it will be a short trip to the top.

The Dinos men's basketball team came up just short of a weekend sweep once again in a face off with the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns Nov. 25-26. The U of L came back hard against the Dinos on Saturday after being mercilessly defeated on Friday night. In the end, home was where the win was for each team.

  Chris Cringle brings early gift for lady ballersPDF files may take a moment to load

On a scale of one to style, the Dinos women's basketball team are currently rated 'just shy' but are pushing new boundaries each week. They met the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns for pair of games--one at home and one in Lethbridge--Nov. 25-26.

The Dinos came out strong at home on Friday, earning an early nine-point lead at 19-10. The Pronghorns, however, would not lie down and die. They somehow put together a 10-0 run to take the lead.

If one were to compile a list of all the great things to come in fours, one may quickly run into trouble and be forced to end their list. My desk has got four drawers. That's kind of cool I suppose; but I hate the word drawer. So moving forward, that magical number is also the number of wins the Dinos women's basketball team has strung together following a losing streak of much bigger enormity.
