A 29-point fourth quarter on Sunday wasn't enough for the UBC Okanagan Heat to pull out a win over the Winnipeg Wesmen in CIS Canada West women's basketball play.
Coming off a 75-71 overtime victory a day earlier against the Manitoba Bisons, even their CIS-leading shooting percentage (82 per cent) from the free-throw line could vault them to a second straight win.
The Heat (4-5) went to the line 29 times on Sunday, knocking down 27 shots, but still came out on the short end of an 84-73 decision because they shot just 29.4 per cent from the field.
Emily Kanester of Vernon scored 18 points and South Surrey's Sarah Allison added 16 in a losing cause.
On Saturday, Vernon's Madison Kaneda scored 15 points and pulled down 12 rebounds as the Heat came back to force overtime. Roslyn Huber of Kelowna also scored 15 and added eight boards.
Playing without this year's and last year's leading scorers, the UBC Okanagan Heat men's basketball team couldn't find enough firepower in Manitoba on the weekend.
Despite holding the Winnipeg Wesmen to a season-low total, the Heat fell 58-51 on Sunday, while dropping a 79-68 decision to the Manitoba Bisons on Saturday.
Kelowna's Mitch Goodwin led the team against the Wesmen with 14 points and the rookie guard added another 15 for the Heat versus the Bisons.
Both Yassine Ghomari, who led the led the team in scoring in 2011-12 and Azi Fahandeg-Sadi (15.5 points per game this season), are out with injuries.
