The men’s and women’s Panther basketball teams play a pair of games at home each this weekend against Saint Mary’s University. The women tip off Friday’s game at 6:00 pm.

“We are looking forward to playing Saint Mary’s at home this weekend,” said coach Greg Gould. “They are an athletic, physical team who execute well in their half-court offence and are one of the best defensive teams in our conference. To be successful, we will have to defend well and keep them off the offensive boards.”

The men take the court against SMU at 8:00 pm.

“Our focus moving into this weekend is to eliminate those stretches throughout the game when we don't take good shots and we lose our concentration on defence,” said coach Darrell Glenn. “We typically have a really bad quarter when we give up greater than 15 points and score less than ten. If we can improve in that area, we give ourselves a fighting chance.”

UPEI and SMU face off again the following night. The women’s game starts at 6:00 pm. The men play at 8:00 pm.
